Bill Cunningham fotografa desde 1978 para a coluna On the Street do New York Times e foi o pioneiro da fotografia de "street style". Anna Wintour, directora da Vogue americana, que já foi fotografada inúmeras vezes por Cunningham diz: “Nós todos nos vestimos para Bill Cunningham. Se ele nos ignora, é a morte”.
O documentário de Richard Press sobre o fotógrafo estreia no próximo mês.
"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." in Bill Cunningham New York
