Bill Cunningham, New York- preview at the Barbican



On Saturday afternoon I will be going to this screening at the Barbican of the new film about Bill Cunningham,the original street style photographer from New York.

I haven't seen the film yet so I can't review it yet but as someone who is hoping to get brave with their camera for an exciting project this should be perfect research.

**Edit- this film is utterly brilliant. Bill is a charming, fascinating and endearingly eccentric man who is consumed by his desire to record the beauty of clothes and street style. His professionalism and manners are beguling and I left wishing everyone could find a career that they loved so honestly. His existance is also a reminder to always leave the house looking good!**

Hark!?! Exciting project? Do tell... Also thank you for bringing this film to my attention. (Since I've been travelling I have no concept on what's new or worth looking out for!) Enjoy your screening and look forward to your review...
