Esther 4


    I have loved photography since my childhood. I enjoy nature, people, street scenes, architecture, food, flowers, and unique views. Sometimes, I wish I could import scent into the photos, so that you can see and smell the experience, such as the mountain pine, fresh baked bread, wine, pizza, flowers, and spices.

    I have discovered that other artists inspire me such as Georgia O'Keeffe. I recently visited Santa Fe and had the opportunity to see a film about her life and her museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

    Another person who inspires me is Vivian Maier who photographed over 100,000 photos on the streets of Chicago. A few other photos were made outside of Chicago. She was a nanny and primarily took photographs on week-ends in Chicago during the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Vivian was not known as a photographer, while she was alive. She was discovered by a stranger who bought her negatives and undeveloped film after her death. There are now books and a movie about her life. Her photos are considered to be some of the best street photography of her era.
