Guest Blog - My Bill Obsession
Thus far, ooh la la readers, I have not disclosed too much about myself but I feel it appropriate to do so for the purposes of this particular post. I am a photographer. For three solid years you could find me on the red carpets of Manhattan's toniest parties shooting images of all matter of celebrity. In fact, I have captured images of many of the people this blog obsesses over, like Anna Wintour and Tyra Banks. Of all of the celebrities I have had the pleasure of photographing, there is one person I have been captivated by more than any other during my sojourn through the enchanted land of the rich and famous. That person, you'll be surprised to find out, was a fellow photographer, a man I often found myself standing beside at various events. His name is .
I was not surprised that a quick search of the ooh la la archives uncovered KJ's fascination with him as well. He is a charming and delightful man who, for me, upholds the ideals of creative purity and diligence. I aspire to the singularity of his vision as a street photographer. I was absolutely delighted to see this article in NY Magazine, describing Mr. Cunningham's early work as a hat designer. A truly creative person, after all, is rarely only creative in one field. His creations are nothing short of bizarre and, to me, completely fascinating. The more I learn about Bill Cunningham, the more I adore him!
