If you want to get the feel of big city life without leaving your armchair, just pop "Bill Cunningham New York" into your DVD player. Cunningham is a longtime photographer for the New York Times, known for his "On the Street" feature in which he photographs what trendy folks actually wear when they are out and about in the Big Apple. His photos always have a great sense of humor about them. This documentary follows the seventy-something Mr. Cunningham on the job. He's a real personality who rides a bicycle everywhere and still insists on using film--none of that digital photography for him, thank you. He lives in an apartment (bath down the hall) above Carnegie Hall. Though he's known as a fashion photographer, this slice-of-life film will be entertaining even if you are the sort who defines being well dressed as having on a clean T-shirt and matching socks. Whether you are a photographer or simply enjoy visiting New York, chances are you will really like this DVD that might have slipped under your radar.

My husband and I watched this and absolutely loved it. Bill is an inspiring and incredible artist - and so wonderfully humble. This DVD was a fascinating look into the life of an artist, an industry, and a great city. Thanks for recommending it!
