‘Bill Cunningham New York’

Layout 1Finally caught up with this fabulous Richard Press directed  documentary, released in Australia back in 2012.

Photographer Bill worked the streets of Manhattan snapping his pics of New York couture for his The New York Times columns. In spite of his $40 workers jackets, bicycle clips and sellotaped waterproofs, Bill could access any runway in the city or fashion week in Paris – and usually front row. Surrounded by glamour, he was at his most comfortable in $3 sandwich shops.

Singularly dedicated to his art, this charismatic man plied his art for more than 40 years. He died in June 2016 at the age of 87.

    It’s a shame he’s gone. But this documentary shows him perfectly off. Nice review.
