The New York Times street and society photographer Bill Cunningham has been a fixture and regular chronicler of fashion weeks for decades. The new documentary follows the 80+ snapper at work as well as showing a more personal side to his story - the food he eats, the bike he rides every day. Even the tiny apartment where he used to live - one of the now-defunct artist studios in Carnegie Hall - gets a feature, bringing us on a journey to an extraordinary, time-warped world. What matters here are not so much the technical skills, but more the enthusiasm - something that both Cunningham and his fellow neighbour, portrait photographer Editta Sherman, have nourished for over 60 years.
