The man, the myth, the legend. New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham, in his trademark blue smock, at work on Fashion’s Night Out.
Bill was working away on 58th Street and 5th Avenue, just outside of Bergdorf’s, at 10:30PM. This being Fashion’s Night Out, some people started to recognize who was moving amongst them and three girls even took a picture with him. But there eventually got to be so much attention on him that he held up a finger and said, “One minute,” to further photo requests and then mildly worked his way down the street, still snapping away. A moment later he was gone, as quick as an elf. I’m not kidding, you could not find him at all, it was as though he had vanished. I don’t know how he did it! This is the last picture of him I took before he got away.
