Absolute. Obsession.



...And the delayed expression of it in the medium of blog... Last week when I found out on Twitter about Bill Cunningham New York I lost my marbles. I emailed and planned a field trip with Lauren to see it in Austin since San Antonio won't have the pleasure of hosting him... Then emailed it to my mom, who I knew would love his desire to capture photos of people in the dramatic, exciting, avant garde...And now I'm just counting down the days until I can see it, see it again, and then buy it.



First, I think he's just darling. Second, his photography is grounds for obsession. Thirdly, the perspective of the film should be so interesting-- that he lives in that little studio on that cot with minimal amenities...Such passionate, inspired, creative, authentic vision, obviously supremely inspirational--will be so good. Every bit of it. Watch the trailer below




And plan your field trips too. Hope you're having a nice week!


Link to On The Street with Bill Cunningham on NYTimes- where you could very easily get lost for hours...I recommend this.
