Money is the cheapest thing – New Quote I Love

Sunday, 2 February, 2014

I’m adding this Bill Cunningham quote to my long list of Quotes I Love,

Money is the cheapest thing. Liberty/freedom is the most expensive.

If you can, check out this fun and deeply insightful documentary “Bill Cunningham New York” (trailer):

You can also check out Bill’s video work at NYT. And Bill is definitely one of the Great Minds if Our Time!

Bill Cunningham – Great minds of our time

Bill Cunningham New York - Pix 01

I’ve only “known” the great photographer Bill Cunningham for a few days from watching the documentary “Bill Cunning New York”. From this one documentary alone and the testimonies from many people in the doc, I believe his visual contributions and the examples he set (ethics as a reporter and his work over the years) has taught me personally a lot. See also NYT “Bill on Bill” and also “The Picture Subjects Talk Back”.

I am delighted to add Bill to my list of Great minds of our time along the likes of Richard FeynmanRonald Coase & Steve CheungBill Buxton, and Warren Buffett.

Have a watch of “Bill Cunning New York” and you will see why. The film is on Netflex (US),  iTune, Amazon, and on DVD. Here is the Bill Cunningham New York Trailer

Bill Cunningham New York – Wow!

Wednesday, 4 April, 2012

Ready to be wowed by Bill Cunningham New York over dinner! Here is a trailer.


Bill Cunningham New York – LOVE IT

Sunday, 18 September, 2011

I love the Bill Cunningham New York trailer. If you enjoy fashion, I dare you to not love it. Hope it will be screened in Calgary but I suspect I’ll have to watch it on DVD.

Love this Anna Wintour quote in the trailer, “We all get dressed for Bill.” “He has been documenting me since I was a kid. And it is one snap, two snap, or he ignores you, which is death.”

[HT Alice Schroeder for the movie link and the recommendation, “just saw Bill Cunningham New York, surely will win an Oscar. Fantastic.”]

P.S. At press time, it is 98% Fresh.

Roger Ebert,

“Do not make the mistake of calling Bill Cunningham a “fashion photographer.” He is a photographer of people and what they wear. Don’t call him a “paparazzo.” He doesn’t know who half the celebrities are and doesn’t care. He’s genuinely fascinated by what people wear — not by haute couture, but by what makes people feel good about themselves. He cycles to social events and openings, to street fairs and parades, to parks and markets, and will stop in the middle of the street if he spots an interesting hat.”
