Inspiration – Bill Cunningham

Bill Cunningham is an inspiration for me. Yesterday was his 87th birthday. He is still very active and photographs for the New York Times. Once a week he compiles a short video as this above about fashion, mostly in New York.

There are a number of things that are worth mentioning

  • At age 87 he is actively working as photographer
  • He still shoots on film
  • His main mode of transport is a bicycle
  • He is highly independent and from what I know does not receive any payment by the New York Times, not that they wouldn’t want to pay him, but he refuse to get paid.
  • Bill Cunningham received the Officier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture and photographed his own prize giving.
  • He is a story teller.
