Could John Turner Be The Next Undiscovered Vivian Maier?

If you're not familiar with Vivian Maier you can check her story out here. I have some of her books and they are wonderful.

But here is a new discovery and, while Turner certainly doesn't match Maier in terms of being prolific, he does, in my opinion, match in terms of, shall we say, 'wonderfulness'! The video is on CNN so I can't embed it, but it is definitely worth a watch. I particularly like the irony of the image where the 'beggar' is asking the woman who is collecting money herself for a donation. He really had an eye for irony and for catching 'the moment'.

Have a look at the short video: entitled "Photos Found In Suitcase Show A Different Time". A very enjoyable few minutes!
