Bill Cunningham New York

Ten years in the making, Richard Press’s Bill Cunningham New York opens at New York’s Film Forum on March 16, 2011.

Bill Cunningham is a celebrated New York Times photographer. For decades, this 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), 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. Richard Press’s film takes a close look into Bill’s personal life, his almost religious obsession with photography and fashion, and daily life in NY.

Find Mr. Cunningham on the streets of New York..if your lucky.
