Candid NYFW: Bill Cunningham in Action

It was only later when I was looking through the days "catch" of candid pictures when realized I had captured this exchange between the master street fashion photographer and his subject. At the time I was just getting a photographer in action and some colorful leggings.

And just in case anyone hasn't heard of Bill, here is the documentary you need.

    Bill Cunningham in action! Amazing! I love how thrilled his subject looks - and she should be. :)

    That's awesome! I love everything about this. :-) Those leggings are fab, and so is Bill Cunningham!

  • Diana replied 7 years ago

    Too cool!

    That is the first time I've actually seen someone wearing those crazy heelless shoes! (Although for a while I kept seeing them in the banner ad at the top of the forum...) I wonder how she walks in those.

    Squee!! So cool!

    I love how Bill's puffer coat is the same color as his famous jacket!

    I recognize those leggings , they're by Black Milk.


    Awesome shots, Greg.

    LOL at MaryK's observation! So true on the color of Bill's winter coat version! Greg, these candid "catches" are so good, with the "master" in your frame, the natural exchange and smile on the face of Bill's "subject" and the wild and wonderful stained-glass leggings and architecturally-challenged shoes. Love it!!

    and I'm betting that anyone wearing those leggings and those shoes knows exactly who he is.

    I love this--it's like a mini-documentary! Thanks for sharing it.

    Action shots of the master at work. I love it! Love his blue Winter coat too, Mr. Cunningham knows what he likes.
    I can never figure out how you photographers can take pictures while wearing these thicker gloves.

    So rad!

    Anna, I love that you recognized the leggins - I was just thinking, I wonder where they're from?
