It doesn’t matter how perfect your work is if no one sees it.

In 1952 a twenty five year old first generation New Yorker working in a sweatshop bought a Rolleiflex medium format camera and revolutionized street photography. Or that’s what might have happened. In reality, Vivian Maier died in obscurity after a lifetime of working normal day jobs. She was one of the greatest street photographers that ever lived but nobody saw her photos till her storage unit was auctioned off when she defaulted on the fee. 

If the winner of that auction hadn’t recognized the value of her work it may have been lost.
