Amid convention and rebellion, the artist vacillates from Jeckyl to Hyde.

The artist uses cash to pay for the sex — the stuff they wish they were doing for a living. Vivian Maier was a babysitter who in her off-hours roamed the streets of Chicago with her 35mm color camera capturing beautiful everyday moments.

Maier didn’t have Instagram so she kept all the film to herself, under her bed where they were discovered fifty years later.

We all have a special genius or talent hidden in the fabric of our virulent selves. Neither fame nor fortune, expression is as essential as your day job.
