Bill Cunningham

1929 -2016

You can learn a lot from watching Bill at work, the first thing I learned is he is just trying to do his job and he does not want to be bothered by people taking his photo, I respect that, but I sure don’t regret the photos I took of him. 

The next thing I learned from watching Bill, it has nothing to do with who you are and everything to do with who will make the most interesting photo. He could care less about what Anna Wintour is wearing. 

Last thing I learned, was to always stand near Bill on the streets, because when people saw him they lit up. 

Photographing street style was a new experience for me but being able to work alongside one of my photography heroes was truly and honor. I feel so lucky I got to share my first two fashion weeks with Bill Cunningham.
