Fascinating documentary, Bill Cunningham New York (2010), about the New York Times fashion photographer, still a workhorse even in his 80s, riding along on his Schwinn in NYC. Is it possible to adopt him as my grandfather? In complete awe of his simple approach to life.
“Cunningham, in his trademark blue workman’s coat, photographs people on the streets of Manhattan. He’s a monk for fashion, and Richard Press’ doc explores his ascetic lifestyle. He cares little for food, for his own dress, for his living space. He has few close relationships. It’s at once awe-inspiring and deeply saddening, his devotion to beauty. You’ll never think about integrity the same way again. You’ll also never love New York as much.”
To view his latest photographs and listen to his narration, visit New York Times. I love listening to his voice and distinct accent.
