For the past 50 years he's been cycling around Manhattan taking pictures for emWomen's Wear Daily/em, emDetails/em, and most prominently the emNew York Times/em, for which he provides two popular weekly columns, "On the Street" and "Evening Hours". The latter chronicles the rich as they go about their ostentatious work of dressing up to attend or organise charity events. The former, far more interestingly, observes the changing fashions of people as they walk the dramatic streets of New York sporting creations and combinations of their own. In his pictures and deportment Cunningham is like a Weegee of fashion, catching an ever-changing world on the wing. It's a charming, loving, witty portrait of the life and work of a delightful, kind man. He's a figure of probity in a corrupt, ruthless world of poseurs, mildly camp but essentially unaffected. Genuinely in love with clothes, Cunningham makes you think of fashion in a more positive and enlightened way./pdiv class="related" style="float: left; margin-right: 10px; margin-bottom: 10px;"ullia href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/documentary"Documentary/a/lilia href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/photography"Photography/a/lilia href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/new-york"New York/a/lilia href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/usa"United States/a/li/ul/divdiv class="author"a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/profile/philipfrench"Philip French/a/divbr/div class="terms"a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk"guardian.co.uk/a copy; 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.
