i imagine fame must be a difficult thing to deal with.
i think of vivian maier, that truly amazing street photographer and the fame she is experiencing posthumously. There was some great quote which i can't remember but it went something like...you do the work and let the rest of the world decide what to do with it. it was more eloquent when she said it.
i relate to that in my own quest for fame as an artist who's work mattered.
fame after death sounds ok to me, tho i could really deal with the money that usually accompanies fame.
meanwhile, i don't have near enough experience with fame to make much of a commentary.
