Win tickets to Bill Cunningham New York

Directed by Richard Press, the documentary, Bill Cunningham New York provides an intimate look at the life of acclaimed American photographer, Bill Cunningham.

“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The ‘Bill’ in question is 80-year-old The 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 (Anna Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, and 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 portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.

The film is out in Australia on 3 November. View the trailer below:

  22. Di

    Yes please! I’d love to learn the tricks of street fashion photography from a legend…in Melbs

  23. I lived in NY in the 1990′s and covered the fashion shows for the magazine I worked for, as well as the Australian media. Seeing Bill at all the shows was always a treat. The way he knew everyone in the crazy fashion world yet he himself stayed so unassuming. The editors all knew Bill, and his presence was a reminder that fashion is not all about designers, but about individual style and interpretation – and he was there to capture all that.

  24. I’d love to go. Legend.
