Before there were thousands of personal style and street fashion blogs (many of which I love), there was Bill Cunningham. The famed New York Times photographer is best known for riding around the Big Apple on his bicycle for the past forty years with a camera around his neck and a passion for documenting fashion trends. By night, he was charged with capturing Manhattanites on the social circuit for his two weekly columns in the Sunday Times.
Today, the man behind the lens can be seen on big screen in a new documentary, Bill Cunningham New York, capturing his exceptional zeal for fashion and the City. The documentary, offering a peek into this intensely private, 81-year-old’s non-stop working habits, comes to the Jane Pickens (and theaters around the country) April 1-7th. Click here for show times.
