Awesome post ... and WOW those photos ... gulp

nice post. stunning photos. she actually reminds me of Henri Cartier-Bresson when he says he's a "anarchist". She seemed to be politically aware of class, race, and gender and had remarkable skills indeed for capturing these moments. It is still early days, as her collection of photographs is only a fraction uncovered, but i suspect the world will succumb to the quality, intrigue and political context of which her photos are undoubtedly rich with. Plus i will ad that it makes me happy that she was indeed a woman.

"She seemed to be politically aware of class, race, and gender and had remarkable skills indeed for capturing these moments."

I agree completely. There is a keen intelligence at work in these photos, as well as a deep visual sophistication. I would love to know what she read and, as I mentioned, who she talked to.

It will be wonderful to watch this story play out.

No doubt about it. Looking at them keeps me humble.
