Bill Cunningham was the longtime fashion photographer for the New York Times. His accomplishments and influence are enormous, but it’s the human being I find so charming. He was a soulful artist, visionary, and champion of the oddball.
Most of all he was sincere. How else can you describe someone who invents a hat that resembles a clam, with the wearer’s head as the pearl?
Be sure to look at the photos.
