Self portraits.

The great story about Vivian Maier and the guy who found a treasure trove of her lost negatives (link: here), was blogged about ad nauseam a few months (or year?) ago. I loved the story and thought her work was beautiful, but was reluctant to think any more about them for some reason...until I came across these self portraits she did (link: here) which are quite breathtaking.

Self portraits are great explorations and learning experiences. Who am i? What am i doing? What is this life all about? What does my city look like? What does this camera make things look like? Is this really what i look like?
