The New Yorker Profiles Street Fashion Photographer Cyclist

Check out Bill Cunningham on his way through the streets of New York City. This weeks New Yorker has an article on this gifted eccentric photographer who prefers to get around New York City on the bicycle pictured. He has a column in the New York Times "On the Street" which documents the styles people are wearing around New York. He's been doing it a long time and his pictures are window into the styles of the past.

What I liked was how he watches the Fashionista's but makes sure he isn't a part of it. He is his own creation.

Cool, thanks for pointing this out.

He is amazing.
I have been following his series for years. Did you know he is a total analog photographer? All his films are processed then thrown into a digital show, which is what is shown on the web/on the street series.

how bad ass is that?
