We all get dressed for Bill, says Vogue editor Anna Wintour. ‘Bill’ is the bicycle-riding octogenarian New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this famous 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, 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. Bill Cunningham is not a fashion photographer; he is a photographer of people and what they wear, and what makes people feel good about themselves.  

Bill CunninghamNew York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
