Over the weekend I saw the film, Bill Cunningham New York, a documentary about the New York Times street fashion photographer. It’s been years since I’ve wandered into to the Style section of the Times where Bill’s weekly On the Street photo-scrapbook lives (this week’s column, Reality Check). The film is an inspiration to those who live to work at their craft which Mr. Cunningham has been doing at the New York Times for many years.
Those who seek beauty, will find it is a quote from a charming speech Bill gave when accepting the chevalier dans l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the Ministry of Culture in France.
