The portrait by Richard Press of New York’s living legend Bill Cunningham is an example of how true passion can take over both one’s work and life. Having sensed a strong pull towards fashion and photography since very young age, Cunningham, now 81, takes photos of everything and everyone that seems worth capturing at a given moment. Circling around Manhattan with his bicycle and visiting the New York fashion weeks, the reclusive Cunningham stops to shoot a remarkable hat, Anna Wintour’s carmine red dress or just a T-shirt that fits its owner perfectly. With his dedication and discretion he has earned an access to the lives of many famous fashion figures without any specific effort.
