The Times of Bill Cunningham

Film Screening


With access to over 3 million previously unpublicised images and documents from the archive of legendary street photographer and fashion historian Bill Cunningham, first-time filmmaker Mark Bozek provides a wholly unique insight into the New York and fashion legend. Told in Cunningham’s own words from a recently unearthed interview from 1994, the photographer chronicles in his customarily cheerful and plainspoken manner, moonlighting as a milliner in France while in the army during the Korean War, his move to New York in 1948, his unique relationship with First Lady Jackie Kennedy, his beginnings as a photographer, and his liberated and wholly democratic view of fashion. Narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker.

“[Cunningham] was a natural photographer who anticipated the digital era, but his gift wasn’t so much for crafting impeccable images. It was a talent for living that he expressed through his lens.”
