Bill Cunnigham is an Amazing Artist and Bill Cunnigham New York is a Great Film

Shawn-Laree and I saw Bill Cunnigham New York at the Music Box Theater last Friday. Go see it. Bill Cunningham is the greatest living Irish Catholic artist. There is such joy in his work, his methods, and his theory of art.

Early on in the film he talks about clothing having "an idea". That's what he wants to see-- an idea that is conceived and executed. He seeks and finds beauty daily. All hail Bill Cunningham.

Bonus: recent pic of Cunningham taken by a Chicago Street Style photographer.
