Deb enjoyed Bill Cunningham - New York
If you enjoy the New York Times Style section, you are surely familiar with Bill Cunningham's work. As the pre-eminent chronicler of fashion trends and high society events, Cunningham's photography has graced the pages of the Times for decades. An official selection at the 2010 Silverdocs Documentary Film Festival, filmmaker Richard Press documents Cunningham's bohemian lifestyle, in stark contrast to the flamboyance of many of his subjects. A man of the street, Cunningham's bicycle is his only mode of transportation, in all weather, capturing life in the city. Well known as one of the most important people in New York fashion, his 'On the Street' column documents eclectic, individual looks worn by everyday New Yorkers. Check out this film and watch an artist at work.
