“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour.

The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham (born 1928/9), known for his candid street photography. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Bill photographs people and the passing scene in the streets of Manhattan every day. Most of his pictures, he has said, are never published. Designer Oscar de la Renta has said, “More than anyone else in the city, he has the whole visual history of the last 40 or 50 years of New York. It’s the total scope of fashion in the life of New York.” Though he has made a career out of unexpected photographs of celebrities, socialites, and fashion personalities, many in those categories value his company.

Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.

Bill Cunningham New York opens at New York’s Film Forum on March 16, 2011. The website.

A bunch of us had an afternoon meeting with Jan Kole, founder of Colossi Cycling, and Ben Law from BJ Fixed Gear of Shenzhen about the Asia Fixed Gear Championships 2011 to be held in May, as previously reported at Flwrider. Jan was so kind to invite us to meet in his much cozy home in Shenzhen while his workers started to return home for the Chinese new year holiday. In the warm afternoon sun shining through the plants outside his windows, we listed a number of races and prizes to be held and presented on the big date. More details will be announced later. Stay tuned.
