style brick road: Bill Cunningham photography.

Bill Cunningham photography.

Nakon što sam pogledao jedan od najboljih modnih dokumentaraca 'Bill Cunningham New York' morao sam napisati i post o fotografu New York Times-a koji već desetljećima fotografira ljude na ulicama te se smatra začetnikom streetstyle fotografije. Bill Cunningham je legenda koja u dobi od 83. godien svojom karizmom i načinom rada još uvijek zapanjuje ljude modne industrije. Fotografije su mu još uvijek analogne, a odišu duhom New York Cityja. Kroz svoju tjednu rubriku pokazuje trenutne trendove na posve jedinstven način, neopterečen vanjskim utjecajima. Ako legende poput Iris Apfel i Anne Wintour govore kako se sređuju za njega, onda znate da je velika faca.
Ovaj dokumentarac iz 2010. morate pogledati ako ste zaljubljenik u modu, fotografiju ili jednostavno volite zanimljive ljude i priče, a ako želite postati streetstyle fotograf onda je ovo apsolutna 'biblija'. Osim što se bavi modnim aspektom, progovara i o Billovom privatnom životu (koji zbog njegova zanimanja gotovo i ne postoji) te o cijelom načinu života koji je apsolutno fascinantan.

After I watched one of the best fashion documentaries 'Bill Cunningham New York' i decided to write a post about the New York Times photographer who has been photographing street fashion for many decades, and who is considered as one of the pioneers of streetstyle photography. Bill Cunningham is at the age of 83, a legend whose charisma and way of work are astounding the people of fashion industry.  His photos are still analogue, and they reflect the spirit of modern New York City. He keeps showing the current trends in his weekly column in NYT, in a completely unique way, unencumbered by outside influences. If legends like Iris Apfel and Anna Wintour say they dress up for him, then you know he's a big deal.
This 2010 documentary is a must-see if you are a fashion lover, photography lover or just like interesting people and stories, but if you are an aspiring streetstyle photographer then this is an absolute 'bible' for you. The movie talks about his whole life, his lifestyle, and his non-existing private life, and how it all (of course) intertwines with fashion.

Nadam se da će Bill poživjeti što više kako bi nas uveseljavao svojim duhom i talentom!

I hope Bill will live as long as possible so he can bring joy to the whole fashion industry as much as possible!
