Over the weekend I finally got around to watching Bill Cunningham New York. Actually, I watched it twice.

                                                *Via the NY Times

Very simply, I adored it. Bill is so crazy and such a genius. Insanely humble and so passionate about his craft. He makes me only want to ever shoot film for the rest of my life. Both times he started crying, I understood. And I cried too. I must have reached for the remote to pause or rewind at least fifteen to twenty times so I could type quotes into my iphone.

Here are some of my favorites.

*If you don't take money, they can't tell you what to do, kid. 

*Money is the cheapest thing. Liberty, freedom, is the most expensive.

*I eat with my eyes. 

*My dear, it's not work. It's pleasure. You think I'd miss a good picture? 

*I don't work. I only have fun every day.

And the very best one...

*It's as true today as it ever was. He who seeks beauty, finds it.

Even if you don't own a camera or care a thing for fashion, please see it. It will change you for sure.

  1. I had to come back here and update you -- I watched this yesterday, after tons of recommendations that I do so. I loved it so much. I was most inspired by how simply he lived his life and how happy he seemed, even at such an old age ... just living in the moment, doing what he loves. Some kind of remarkable for sure.
