What a cool project for them! I never plan to visit NY but this type of exhibition would definitely be on my list!

What an amazing find. So jealous! Just watched “Bill Cunningham New York” again last night with my daughter, who’s 10, and adores him. Sweet coincidence.

I remember Bill’s fashion reviews in Details Magazine from a million years. Details was very affordable. At that time, comprehensive photographic representations of runway shows were only available in huge, glossy, super-expensive magazines so those issues of Details were treasured by poor kids like me. Honestly? I think he is a complete rebel in the best sense of the word.

Amazing find and great write up on the subject. Cunningham is an institution. How is there just 12 comments on this?

Many, many years ago I too stumbled upon this book, but it was at the Strand Bookstore in the Village. At that time they were drastically marked down and my interest was the NYC architecture set off against the fashion of their era. I only came to know more of Bill Cunningham later, and when I first met him I mentioned the book and how much I had enjoyed it. He said he’d shot a hundred more images then made the book. Also, upon later seeing the documentary, “Bill Cunningham New York” I realized that his model in all his shots was one of his fellow Carnegie Hall Studio neighbors, the photographer Editta Sherman.
