"Not what I think or feel, it's what I see." - BILL CUNNINGHAM
One of my fave quotes from Bill Cunningham New York documentary which releases today at Cinema du Parc. I attended the premiere this past Monday and was really moved by the New York Times style photographer. Bar none, this once milliner has a sharp eye for style, but what I appreciate the most is his approach to capturing life as he sees it. He's not reincarnating the perfect moment nor making his subjects "smile for the camera" poses.
He is a man driven by passion and content with very little - his iconic blue jacket cost a mere $20. Pretty ironic since his features are mostly about well-heeled New York social butterflies. You would think he found the secret to happiness: he's enjoying life by doing what he loves and doesn't require the fancy nonsense of everyday. However it seems to come with a price of loneliness. A tear came to my eye as he struggled to share about his personal life.
A must-see movie! Check out the trailer.
On a side note lovelies, I was selected as part of the TOP 5 looks that were captured by Montreal's very own street style photographer Sebastien Roy.
