NYTIMES Fashion/street photographer Bill Cunningham, profiled in full in the print version of the New Yorker, had a quote about hemlines and looking for fashion that sounded a lot like a wider statement about his approach (and the approach of many) to street photography.
“You watch, you’ll see something. There’s the old saw about hemlines. Who knows? It’s only in the future you can know. You just have to stay out on the street and get it. It’s all here.”
