"Bill Cunningham: On the Street"
“A dazzling kaleidoscope from the gaze of an artist who saw beauty at every turn.”—André Leon Talley
Bill Cunningham’s photography captured the evolution of style, trends, and the everyday, both in New York City and in Paris. But his work also shows that street style is not only about fashion; it’s about the people and the changing culture.
Cunningham’s distinctive photographs chronicles the 1980s transit strike, the rise of 1990s casual Fridays, the sadness that fell over the city following 9/11, Inauguration Day 2009, the onset of selfies, and other significant cultural moments.
An enduring portfolio enriched by essays that provide a revealing portrait of Cunningham and his fascinations and influences, with contribution by Cathy Horyn, Tiina Loite, Vanessa Friedman, Ruth La Ferla, Guy Trebay, Penelope Green, Jacob Bernstein, and a much favored subject, Anna Wintour.
More than anything, On the Street is a timeless representation of Cunningham’s commitment to capturing the here and now.
