Art, process and design blog of an aspiring industrial designer.

“Bill Cunningham is the street-fashion and society chronicler for The New York Times. After 50 years of cycling the streets of the Big Apple with his camera, snapping the great, the good and the stylish, Bill Cunningham is now in front of the lens in this loving and intimate portrait of a remarkable man and a chronicler of a city.”

My thoughts:
This film was so great and definitely for a compassionate of art and fashion. It was a not-uncomfortably-intrusive and fascinating study into an unusual man’s life (unusual man, yet an every-man). Plus, a really great reminder of why you should bother dressing interestingly and why you should bother trying new things.

The film also gives an honest insight into the experience of being in a profession that you love (not striving for a position you love, but actually what life is like after you get it), and gives an insight into life in New York city. Despite his love of flamboyancy in clothing, I left feeling that Bill gave the viewer permission to not be ashamed to look perhaps too much in-depth into something others may see as ordinary or uninteresting.
