Yesterday I had the privilege of going to see an amazing documentary with two of my dear friends, Ashby and Chris, on what was quite a wet and dreary day in New York City. We headed downtown to the Village East Cinema to see a stunning film called Bill Cunningham New York which I had written about earlier in the week. The film chronicles the life of 80 year old New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham who has spent his entire career riding around Manhattan snapping photos of the cities fashion trends. His life is rich with enthusiasm and spirit. The film is extremely inspring and just what I needed as I begin a new journey myself on Monday as I start my new job. Bill's passion for clothes and the regular woman who wear them each day on the streets has been his life blood. He has worked day in and day out for over 50 years becoming something of cultural historian. For a while he even worked for the original Details magazine, shooting every single image in the magazine, for free. Why free, you ask? He stated that if he was paid then they would be able to tell him what he could and couldn't do. If he wasn't paid then he could do as he pleases. He said "Money is the cheapest thing...Liberty is the most expensive." I loved that. He is bored by celebrities and celebrates the everyday woman who treats this city as her catwalk. The film is touching and sometimes sad but in the end you leave with the notion that if you want something bad enough and that "something" makes you happy then you have no other responsibility but to follow it. The film was a lovely reminder of why we all need to follow our hearts. I hope you'll check it out if you can. I know you will not be disappointed. Thanks to Ash and Chris for the invite. Love you ladies. x.
The following is the trailer for a documentary about New York Times street fashion photographer Bill Cunningham. I wasn't even aware of this film but now I'm gonna have to go seek it out. It looks fabulous. Watch!
