Amy Arbus, daughter of Diane Arbus, did a weekly fashion section for the Village Voice in the 80's... this is why i'm so thankful to have grown up and still be living in New York... This IS street style photography.

I don't want to be high
I don't want you to be down
Don't want to tell you no lie
Just want you to be around 

Please come right up to my ears
You will be able to hear what I say 
Don't want you out in my world
Just you be my backstreet girl 
-Rolling Stones

Vivian Maier was a nanny who lived in Chicago for most of her life and passed away in 2009 at the age of 83. Little more is known about her, except that she was an avid street photographer. Her work was discovered at an auction in 2007, more than 100,000 negatives and undeveloped rolls of film, sold by a storage facility who were cleaning out her locker for delinquent rent.
