Bill Cunningham New York

Documentary Biography


A cinematic profile of the noted veteran New York City fashion photographer.

"Seek beauty, and you'll find it", says the subject of this captivating film biography. The documentary spans the lifelong career of a delightfully eccentric and passionately obsessive follower of fashion. The film-maker almost becomes a private detective following his subject, a lively photographic journalist who is dedicated to the singular pursuit of capturing the style of people out on the street. As unassuming as the photographer is, he is undeniably one of the who's who of the New York fashion scene; the challenge is keeping up with him. Run-a-way success.
