This is Vivian Maier + my all time favourite photographer

Nobody knew anything personal about Vivian, she was a nanny for various families, but no one knew who she was. She kept one big secret, that she was an amazing creative with the best eye for a photograph ever.

She took over 200,000 photos of everything she saw throughout her days, yet for someone so closed she seemed quite open to take her self portrait, little snippets of herself. I owe a lot to vivian and she has given me so many ideas and inspired me.

    @jordanfoy I have a proposal to make. I know this sounds crazy and pointless, but as you know you are one of the most followed and liked people in the steller community. Me on the other hand, have few followers, but treasure each one. If you are interested in my idea please respond. Here it is,: I screenshot your story, crop out some bits, make it into the exact story but under MY name. I want to see (as an experiment, not to steal your work) if I can get as many likes, and if you have to be( I'moitofspace)

  • COBoyd

    Established as an author to achieve great feats.....

  • jordanfoy

    @COBoyd see maybe the way you need to approach this is give the story a go yourself, you will appreciate it for yourself, remember making content is all about you enjoying making content, others will pick up on that, I just enjoy making content and that comes across :) also remember if one person likes it, and that person is a friend, then that means more than 1000 likes :)
