The industry’s most beloved and respected fashion photographer and historian, Bill Cunningham’s street fashion photographs have been running in The New York Times for over 35 years—“a whole visual history” of New York in recent decades, as Oscar de la Renta said.
Cunningham is friendly and familiar with many of the city’s elite, but rarely gives interviews. Kick off the new season of Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis with a New York fashion legend.

This event is part of the Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis series.
Bill Cunningham, the legendary New York Times fashion photographer, spots and distills the latest trends from the runways of Paris to the colorful streets of New York. His candid photographs of ordinary people passing on the streets of Manhattan every day focuses on their genuine usage of clothing to express their personal style. He has photographed fashions over the last 40-50 years, and through these photographs we have a visual history of fashion in New York. In 2010, filmmaker Richard Press and Philip Gefter of The Times produced Bill Cunningham New York, a documentary that details his philosophy on fashion, art and photography, as well as observes his interactions with his subjects while taking photos.
