Bill Cunningham ... must watch the documentary...

Bill Cunningham New York Trailer from Gavin McWait on Vimeo.

Bill Cunningham has been photographing street style since 1978. He is the main style photographer for the New York Ttimes and is, in fact, a legend. He got his big break when he luckily snapped a shot of Greta Garbo on the street, showed it to her, she loved it and thus started a new means of distributing fashion photography. Here is a scan of the image that started it all.

This week a documentary will be released about Bill entitled, “Bill Cunningham New York” - all about his life as a street style photographer (trailer above - so stoked).

“The main thing I love about street photography is that you find the answers you don’t see at the fashion shows. This was something I realized early on: if you just cover the designers in the shows, that’s only one facet. You also need the street and the evening hours. if you cover the three things, you have the full picture of what people are wearing.” - Bill Cunningham

How Can You Be Original Today?

“How can you be original today?” he asked.

In answer, he said, “You are original in your own identity.”

I believe originality is innate. You don't be original. You are original. Or you're not. It can take you time to bring it out, but yes, it's innate.
