Bill Cunningham

ARTS CONNECTION 2012 Benefit Celebration Honoring MARK WAHLBERG and RICHARD KIRSHENBAUM

This week we are looking at Streetstyle photography which I have loved. Of  the movies I watched this week, my favourite is a documentary on the legend that is Bill Cunningham. Bill is a really interesting character, for those of you who don’t know who he is, he is a street photographer based in New York and he currently works for the New York Times. He has been taking photographs since the 1970s and is hugely respected within the industry but still continues to ride around New York on his bike at the age of 85 and isn’t affected by the glamour and decadence around him. He is intensely passionate about what he does, his smile just radiates throughout the whole movie and his enthusiasm of fashion and people is infectious. Its a beautiful and moving film about passion, acceptance and living simply in a world which is extravagant to say the least.
