Look At Those Clothes!

Musings on style and fashion

Who’s In and Who’s Out?

 

There’s no such thing as ‘in’ or ‘out.’ Style is about having your own look.”

—Bill Cunningham, street style photographer for the NY Times since 1978

 

Bill is 85 years old and still pedaling around the Big A on his bicycle, snapping photos for his “On the Street” column at the Times. He uses a film camera and has had his film developed at a 1-hour photo shop since the Times went digital around 2000.

For a fascinating look at the art and the life of this charming, intelligent, passionate, and enigmatic man, watch the 2009 documentary “Bill Cunningham New York” by Richard Press;  you can find it on Netflix.
