Fashion photographer and anti-materialist may seem a contradiction in terms but it describes the life of the disarming and always charming New York Times photographer, Bill Cunningham, subject of this highly entertaining documentary. Beginning his fashion career as a milliner in the 1940s, Cunningham discovered what has become a lifelong passion for capturing street fashion on camera. A recognisable figure both on the streets of Manhattan and the catwalks of Paris Fashion Week, his life is as inspiring as is his love of photography. Now in his 80s, Bill Cunningham continues to show the influence, inspiration and fun which street fashion can hold for us all.
