  3. I saw the shorts for the doco at the local cinema in a tiny town on the south coast of NSW, but somehow managed to miss it. Looked well worth a see. I was intrigued by her anonymity and apparent lack of desire to be known, as well as by her daring insalubrious neighbourhoods.

      What I found incredulous was the fact that no one in her circle was aware of her photography side-line until after her death. Weird!

    I also saw the documentary (in swedish TV).. she was a very “private” person.

    Loved that documentary. Watched it twice. She was amazing. Talk about the process being all! She didn’t even ever see most of her photos!!!
