Historical Fashion Shown Off In The Streets Of New York


Renowned American fashion photographer William John “Bill” Cunningham Jr. passed away in 2016 at the age of 87. He worked for The New York Times for almost forty years. The self-taught photographer was best known for candid and street photography, capturing people in unguarded moments of personal expression.  In 2014, his eight-year photo project Facades exhibited at the New-York Historical Society. It juxtaposed models in period clothing against historical New York settings. Here are some photos from that project.

Fellow photographer and friend Editta Sherman perches on the edge of her seat in a graffiti-covered subway car.  Sherman collaborated with Cunningham and features prominently in most of Facades.
