tonight, at long last, i finally got to sit down and watch
bill cunningham new york (2010), the documentary which chronicles
the inimitable photographer who has been chronicling new york
fashion for years and years and years.
as you may have guessed, the film was totally inspiring--
to follow bill as he bikes around new york and paris, and
watch him pull out his camera, and snap picture after picture
of every colorful, wacky personality that crosses his path,
to go back with him to his small studio where he literally
lives and sleeps on top of all of his photographs,
and to get to know the intricate details of what he eats,
and what he wears, and where he develops his pictures
feels like such an immense privilege-
one that i highly recommend.
