Shots by Mr Cunningham

In the new documentary, Bill Cunningham New YorkVogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour says, "we all get dressed for Bill." The film's director, Richard Press, however, does not.

"No," he says. "I have my little uniform. It's very minimalist. I just kind of wear the same thing every day." Press's ethos is similar to that of the documentary's subject, the iconic New York Times photographer who is known for maintaining a monotonous style while photographing the city's originals. Matching uniform for uniform, Press followed Cunningham—who hasn't seen the movie, according to the director—around to create a film that shows Cunningham on the street, at New York parties, and in his home. In doing so, he writes a cultural history of the city, revolving around one of its most faithful chroniclers.
