Bill Cunningham: On the Street: Five Decades of Iconic Photography by New York Times

The first published collection of photographs by the icon of street style, bringing together favorites published in The New York Times alongside never-before-seen work across five decades. “A dazzling kaleidoscope from the gaze of an artist who saw beauty at every turn.” – André Leon Talley

Bill Cunningham’s photography captured the evolution of style, of trends, and of the everyday, both in New York City and in Paris. But his work also shows that street style is not only about fashion; it’s about the people and the changing culture.

These photographs-many never before seen, others having originally appeared in The New York Times and elsewhere-move from decade to decade, beginning in the 1970s and continuing until Cunningham’s death in 2016. Here you’ll find Cunningham’s distinctive chronicling of the 1980s transit strike, the rise of 1990s casual Fridays, the sadness that fell over the city following 9/11, Inauguration Day 2009, the onset of selfies, and many other significant moments.

This enduring portfolio is enriched by essays that provide a revealing portrait of Cunningham and a few of his many fascinations and influences, contributed by Cathy Horyn, Tiina Loite, Vanessa Friedman, Ruth La Ferla, Guy Trebay, Penelope Green, Jacob Bernstein, and a much favored subject, Anna Wintour. More than anything, On the Street is a timeless representation of Cunningham’s commitment to capturing the here and now.

Review

On the Street helps fill the void left by Bill’s absence. His voice and his vision are very much alive on these pages, and the pictures and words are possibly even more potent the second time around. Remarkably, even though Bill’s images meticulously and wittily document fashion trends, the photographs never seem dated.  We have in this book the New York we want to believe in, a magical metropolis where every resident, of every species, and even the flowers blooming in the park, have bewitching style. With this survey of his work, organized both chronologically and thematically, we finally see ourselves as Bill saw us-as a proud and restless tribe of exhibitionist-voyeurs.” – Amy Fine Collins, Vanity Fair special correspondent
