Inspired today as I watched the documentary "Bill Cunningham New York" a living legend in the fashion photography world and iconic New Yorker, shooting some of the most original fashion statements for years beyond belief.
Interestingly enough as many fall in love with his photography work and epic collection of imagery, I took a second look and fell in love with his personality and passion for his work.
Looking at every day as a time to play, he takes off on his bike with a smile on his face (even after 80!) and finds peace with collecting stills of the most eccentric, most elegant, most daring outfits worn on the streets. His zest for living and the work he collects is something many only come to dream of, and what I have made a life's mission, to live every day where work is not work at all, more a calling and a time to express yourself in an extremely intimate way, all while having fun doing it!
Here are a few photos of Bill Cunningham that opened my eyes on how he's made a career out of a passion and never let the fun run out of it.
