Bill Cunningham: Facades.

Adding this photography show to my to-do list, at the New-York Historical Society. From their site:

In 1968, photographer Bill Cunningham embarked on an eight-year project to document the architectural riches and fashion history of New York City. Scouring the city’s thrift stores, auction houses, and street fairs for vintage clothing, and scouting sites on his bicycle, Cunningham generated a photographic essay entitled Facades, which paired models—in particular his muse, fellow photographer Editta Sherman—in period costumes with historic settings.





If you don’t think you know Bill Cunningham, you probably do! And if you still don’t know him, watch the documentary about him, “Bill Cunningham New York.” An amazing story not just about fashion, but a peek into the life of a quietly passionate person.
