Sad news from the New York Times this morning: “Bill Cunningham, who turned fashion photography into his own branch of cultural anthropology on the streets of New York, chronicling an era’s ever-changing social scene for The New York Times by training his busily observant lens on what people wore — stylishly, flamboyantly or just plain sensibly — died on Saturday in Manhattan. He was 87.”
Like the rest of the planet, I adored Bill’s photographs. But I really fell in love with him after watching the documentary, Bill Cunningham New York.
You can stream the documentary in full below if you haven’t seen it. What a guy.
