bill cunningham documentary

I know the Bill Cunningham documentary is old news for people who like fashion. But even if you're not a sartorial savant, I recommend checking it out over the weekend. I watched it Wednesday night on Netflix and was so touched by the original street style photographer's humble nature, simple lifestyle (a marvel given the subject of his snaps and the bragging rights he could capitalize on) and all-consuming passion for his craft. Capturing colorful New Yorkers on film is literally his life. His lack of romantic relationships and perceived solitude was sad in one sense, but also made me reconsider unconventional life paths. Getting married and having kids isn't a universal formula for the kind of smile Cunningham bikes through Soho wearing. He's undeniably happy every day, and if he has that, what's there to be sad about? Hope you have a great weekend!
