Agnès Varda is a favorite of mine. Her vantage point is always inspiring and contagious. Daguerréotypes (1978) documents the lives of the small shopkeepers on the street where she (still) lives: rue Daguerre in Paris, FR. Many of the shots linger like still lifes of a past that has vanished. These shop keepers devoted their lives solely to their shop and their neighborhood patrons. I heart her so.
