Documentary Watch: Bill Cunningham New York

Bill Cunningham is arguably the ultimate fashion trend forecaster. For decades he has been photographing not only what the people of NYC are wearing on the street but how. He is loved and celebrated by his coworkers at the New York Times and the entire New York fashion world as being the ultimate source for what’s happening in fashion right now and where the trends are going next. Not caring about class, his subjects range from strangers on the street jumping over rain puddles to high powered Fashion bigwigs such as Vogue‘s Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour. This type of professional clout would surely provide most photographers wealth and access to the powerful but Bill Cunningham will have none of that. Not only does Bill detest money but he refuses to be a slave to it. Having turned opportunities to cash in on his talents he prefers a simpler life of traveling around town on his old crappy bike, wearing a street sweepers jacket, and living in a tiny studio apartment with no bathroom and kitchen. Bill’s level of dedication and high level of ethics is unbelievable and should make all of us press the pause button and question the things we do to get ahead. He is a simple man doing extraordinary work that future generations will look back at for many years to come.

If you’re involved in the fashion world or work in any creative field then this is the movie for you. I rarely see a movie twice but I will be sure to watch Bill Cunningham New York again and again so I can be reminded of why we sometimes have to make great sacrifices for our art. Watch the trailer for the movie after the jump.

Michael Velliquette’s Cut Color Explosion

I’ve been eyeballing Michael Velliquette’s ultra-detailed cut paper reliefs for a while now and they continually get better and better with every year. Having started with surreal landscapes and figurative narratives his new works pictured here have morphed into self contained, ornamental abstractions that look more like rainbow bright totem poles or stretched out musical instruments that have ¬†just been painted by a psychedelic poster ¬†factory.

Catch these and other works by Michael in NYC from April 2nd-May 8th at DCKT Gallery.

Sarah Small’s Disassociated Characters

Sarah Small’s The Delirium Constructions series is an ongoing body of work exploring disassociated themes and characters brought together into the same space. Small brings models into improbable, close interactions to examine the social and graphic contrasts of youth and experience, hysteria and discipline, tragedy and hilarity, and sexuality and desexualization.
