Bill cunningham ha sido fotografo de street style desde 1978. Es el principal fotografo de estilo para el New York Times y es además toda una leyenda. Todo empezó cuando le tomó una foto a Greta Garbo en la calle, se la enseñó, a ella le encantó y empezó algo totalmente nuevo distribuyendo fotografías de moda.
Translation: Bill Cunningham has been photographing street style since 1978. He is the main style photographer for the New York Ttimes and is, in fact, a legend. He got his big break when he luckily snapped a shot of Greta Garbo on the street, showed it to her, she loved it and thus started a new means of distributing fashion photography.



“The main thing I love about street photography is that you find the answers you don’t see at the fashion shows. This was something I realized early on: if you just cover the designers in the shows, that’s only one facet. You also need the street and the evening hours. if you cover the three things, you have the full picture of what people are wearing.” – Bill Cunningham
