ARTIST BIO

Bill Cunningham was a constant presence on the streets of New York for nearly 50 years. A staff photographer for The New York Times, he was first a designer of women’s hats before moving on to writing about fashion for Women’s Wear Daily and the Chicago Tribune. Bill began taking candid photographs on the streets of New York City, and his work drew the attention of The New York Times with a 1978 picture of Greta Garbo in an unguarded moment. Bill cultivated his own fashion signature, dressing in a uniform of black sneakers and a blue work man’s jacket, his only accessory a camera. He travelled throughout Manhattan by bicycle.
