Bill Cunningham New York

 

"Bill Cunningham New York" is a documentary about photographer Bill Cunningham, that shows his sincere passion for fashion. I know he's known as a photographer, but from what I deduced from this documentary, he used photography to capture the essence of fashion throughout the decades, on the streets of New York City.

The documentary highlighted a number of things for me:

  • No matter how busy he was, his religious needs came first. To him, it was Church every Sunday.
  • He didn't care much about celebrities, just what they were wearing.
  • He is very persistent and passionate about what he does.
  • He didn't care much about material things, as long as he's happy inside.

I really enjoyed the documentary, it showed me a few places I was ignoring inside me.
