Fashion, and street, photographer Bill Cunningham died on Saturday at the age of 87. I didn’t know anything about him until this announcement on Reddit and I saw people on social media sites talking about him, and the documentary on his life and work for the New York Times.
I wish his work had more of a presence online, but I guess it was almost entirely in print. You can however, follow his Facebook page, or look at On the Street videos where you’ll find his work.
The documentary is on Netflix, but can also by found on Youtube and is well worth watching.
Here’s a much shorter video with some of the same footage:
