Q: Friends for life?

A: I think so.


Vivian Maier (February 1, 1926 – April 21, 2009) was an American amateur street photographer who was born in New York but grew up in France, and after returning to the U.S., worked for about forty years as a nanny in Chicago.

During those years she took about 100,000 photographs, primarily of people and cityscapes most often in Chicago, although she traveled and photographed worldwide.

What would you think if I sang out of tune

Would you stand up and walk out on me

Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song

And I’ll try not to sing out  of key

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends

Mm, I get high  with a little help from my friends

Mm, gonna try with a little help from my  friends

Paulette et André, 1949.



Brassaï (pseudonym of Gyula Halász) (9 September 1899 – 8 July 1984) was a Hungarian photographer, sculptor, and filmmaker who rose to international fame in France in the 20th century.

He was one of the numerous Hungarian artists who flourished in Paris beginning between the World Wars. In the early 21st century, the discovery of more than 200 letters and hundreds of drawings and other items from the period 1940-1984 has provided scholars with material for understanding his later life and career.

‘Bookends’ – Simon and Garfunkel

‘Time it was
And what a time it was
It was a time of innocence
A time of confidences

Long ago, it must be
I have a photograph
Preserve your memories
They’re all that’s left you’
