“More than anyone else in the city, he has the whole visual history of the last 40 or 50 years of New York. It’s the total scope of fashion in the life of New York.” - Oscar de la Renta

For decades, Bill Cunningham has contributed so much to the world of fashion and street photography. As a photographer and columnist for The New York Times, he is one of the first to make a career out of a rather simple task: following around and capturing unexpected moments of well known individuals in the industry. His work creates a chronicle history of fashion trends and styles through pictures. Not only has he photographed many celebrities and socialites, but also people that walk the streets of Manhattan every day. 

I would love to see this documentary on him.. but as of right now, it's being played at Film Forum in New York :( I checked online and found out that it will be featured sometime in June (exact date unannounced) at the  DETROIT FILM THEATRE, which is also a part of The DIA. I always enjoy going over there from time to time. It's really not that bad of an area and I've found a lot of interesting places there (MOCAD, CASS CAFE, HEIDELBERG PROJECT). If you like art, I suggest you take some time off from your busy schedules and visit!
