Bill Cunningham Documentary

Bill Cunningham was the street-style photographer for the New York Times. He’s was a hilarious, eccentric character who rode around New York City on a Schwinn bike, capturing fabulous people with his camera. A documentary was made about him a few years ago and if I want to jump into the New York mood, I’ll put it on. Here’s the trailer if you’ve not seen it before.

It’s out on DVD – you can buy it here and here. Or you can watch it on Netflix.

Fascinating man and brilliantly made documentary. I found his drive and creative eye inspirational, New York lover or not, this is a must see. Thanks for finding it for me.


Hi Dan – I agree, you don’t have to love NY to love Bill Cunningham. I can’t wait to see the new documentary about Iris Apfel either – there’s post on my blog under the ‘fashion + beauty’ header. Hope you enjoy!
