“We all get dressed for Bill.”
So excited to see Bill Cunningham New York! The documentary about the legendary New York photog by Richard Press opens in New York on March 16, 2011 and has already racked up awards at the festivals. Cunningham has been shooting fashion photography for the New York Times since the late 1970s. He is most well-known for his street style compositions called On The Street that run weekly and have inspired the next generation of street style photographers like Scott Schuman and Tommy Ton. Each week, he does a darling narration of On The Street for NYTimes.com that you must listen to!
It looks like the film provides a glimpse into the little-known personal world of Cunningham and interviews with some of his favorite subjects. With New York as the backdrop, I have high hopes that this film will be a poignant and personal love letter to the vast and varied world of fashion. Someday, perhaps I will be lucky enough to catch Bill’s eye on Fifth Avenue…
