anyway, i just wanted to share with you all the trailer to “Bill Cunningham New York,” a documentary about New York Times photographer, Bill Cunningham. A synopsis from the website itself:
The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.”
i recently downloaded the documentary from iTunes during my debacle with my cast, but have yet to watch it, but thought i would let you all know about it anyway, because i have full confidence that it will be a worthwhile watch and probably explains fashion in a more eloquent and meaningful way than i myself could.
