Weekend Highlight: Seeing Bill Cunningham

by Ryan Shell

How was your weekend?

Fantastic I hope!

Living in New York City, there’s certainly a plethora of things to do on the weekend, and it’s also pretty simple to make a quick escape outside the city. But it seems the unexpected moments the city throws at you are the best.

Granted, there was one thing from the weekend that most certainly stands out.

Whitney and I get married in October, so we did a little wedding cake tasting over the weekend. It was a great time, but not quite the moment in question.

But no, the moment of the weekend was thanks to the guy below: Bill Cunningham.

Screen Shot 2013-07-15 at 4.57.38 PMIf you aren’t aware, Bill Cunningham is a very well known, some may even say iconic, street style photographer for the New York Times. He’s so popular in fact that a movie was made about his life and career at the Times.

Whitney and I were headed to meet our wedding officiant, and when I looked up, Bill was standing right in front of me. He’s a very shy fella, but I tapped him on the shoulder as I walked by and said, “I’m a big fan of your work, sir.”

I shoot street style photography as a hobby, so there’s a huge appreciation for what he does, and the longevity/uniqueness of his career with the Times.

Randomly seeing Bill on the street, amongst the millions of people in the city, was by far a great moment from the weekend.
