An affectionate, celebratory look at the life and snap-happy times of octogenarian New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham.

Keeping pace with Manhattan's fashion-forward citizens astride his trusty Schwinn bike, Cunningham has amassed an impressive and highly expressive body of work over several decades of chronicling fashion trends on the street and at soirees alike for the Times Style section in his columns On The Street and Evening Hours.

Bill himself proves excellent company, giving away little about his personal life though he reveals a winning grace and endearing humanity in his undiminished enthusiasm for his vocation.


"The most elusive and most visible fashion presence in New York has finally been captured on film, in a deeply moving, visually stunning documentary" San Francisco Chronicle

"We all get dressed for Bill" Anna Wintour, Vogue Editor-in-Chief

Winner, Audience Award for Best Documentary, Melbourne International Film Festival
