Few people have had as much impact on the way we wore our clothes like Bill Cunningham. Before the term ‘street style’ was coined and the phenomenon that is the ‘street style photographer’ prevalent, Cunningham was documenting trends (both in high society and on the street) as and when they happened.
The beloved New York Times photographer has seen and captured it all in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.”
From what I have seen of the trailer, ‘Bill Cunningham New York’ comes across as a poignant, inspiring and thought provoking documentary by Richard Press. A portrait of Cunningham’s career spanning fifty years and vision.
It has commentary and appearances from New York’s inner fashion circle; Anna Wintour, Iris Apfel, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller etc.
His work for me is so much more than the designs he captured, but rather the document of our times and the way it influenced how we dressed.
