Bill Cunningham: Snow Day

Bill Cunningham
My friend Sharon of the awesome blog NYC Taught Me, shared this hysterical link to Bill Cunningham’s latest feature in the Times entitled “Whiteout“. Bill astutely points out that women wear appropriate footwear after the storm. Meanwhile men attempt to hurdle the vast slush to no avail. His photos perfectly capture the mood of the city after a big snow storm. I could not help but chuckle at these men mid-leap obviously about to land in an ocean of snow. I also loved the good dads trying to hoist their little ones over the mess. Definitely click on the link above to watch the whole series of photos and Bill’s commentary.

Here’s my portrait of Bill from a few years ago for a contemporary fashion illustration show at the Brooklyn Public Library
