The Legendary Bill Cunningham

Bill Cuningham

When it comes to street-style photography, most of us think of amazing photographers like The Sartorialist: Scott Schuman,  the lovely Garance Dore, Caroline from Stockholm Street Style, and Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil. However before all of these street-style photographers there was the legendary Bill Cunningham. He’s described as a the hardest working reporter in New York, and is known for documenting the interesting clothing that both men and women wear on a daily basis.

We’re both huge fans of street-style photography here at Rubber Boots since it’s such a great source of inspiration for our own method of photography and above all, our wardrobes! What better way to figure out a new way to wear the classic trench coat or outrageously hot pink  pants than to read street-style blogs?

So you can imagine how excited we were to hear that a documentary has been released based on Bill Cunningham. It’s a limited release, but you can click here to see movie times in your area. To read a little bit more about Mr. Cunningham, check out this article in the New York Times, where they describe how this documentary took 10 years to make! Mainly because it took 8 years to get him to agree to it!

Here’s a little sneek peak at the documentary…
