FILM #1 – Thurs 25. April
'Bill Cunningham New York' (2010)
Directed by Richard Press, USA, 84mins, OV

Free welcome drinks: 18:00
Film starts: 19:00

The first film to kick start our FOR THE LOVE OF PHOTOGRAPHY series explores the eccentric, obsessive, and tireless NYC fashion chronicler Bill Cunningham. Armed with a camera, he was one of the most enduring and individual authorities on fashion.

For decades, this bike-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures, downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
