Reviews

"Bill Cunningham: On the Street is the work of a great anthropologist and fashion genius. Through his skilled eyes and his camera lens, he chronicled a half-century of fashion, capturing the high road, as well as the man or woman, in the fashion parade of daily life. This book is a dazzling kaleidoscope from the gaze of an artist who saw beauty at every turn."--Andre Leon Talley, Vogue contributing editor

"On the Street helps fill the void left by Bill's absence. His voice and his vision are very much alive on these pages, and the pictures and words are possibly even more potent the second time around. Remarkably, even though Bill's images meticulously and wittily document fashion trends, the photographs never seem dated. We have in this book the New York we want to believe in, a magical metropolis where every resident, of every species, and even the flowers blooming in the park, have bewitching style. With this survey of his work, organized both chronologically and thematically, we finally see ourselves as Bill saw us--as a proud and restless tribe of exhibitionist-voyeurs."--Amy Fine Collins, Vanity Fair special correspondent "This book is so inspiring, not only for the incredible fashion and images that Bill captured, but also for celebrating his decades-long commitment to the genre of street style."--Scott Schuman, The Sartorialist "The history of fashion is actually the history of fashion photography, and in that respect, Bill Cunningham is our Herodotus."--Judith Thurman, staff writer and cultural critic at The New Yorker "Pure joy and an absolute must for fashion lovers and Cunningham fans."--Booklist (starred review)
