Masha Ivashintsova was a Russian artist and theater critic who died in 2000 with a secret – she was a serious photographer. She took more than 30,000 pictures in her lifetime, and no one who knew her knew about it.
After her death, her daughter stumbled across the collection of negatives in her mother’s attic.
One of the great things about this is the reminder that we don’t really know each other, or what we are capable of.
Friends are scanning the images, and her daughter is loading the collection to Instagram.
