Nurture Yourself - Bill Cunningham New York
If you are a New York Times reader or a Sunday Styles section devotee, this wonderful documentary on photographer Bill Cunningham will enlighten you on the man behind the photography millions have grown to recognize and love. If you've never heard of Bill Cunningham, this will be a touching and beautiful story of a simple and talented 82 year-old photographer who has been photographing the most stylish, wealthy and well-known people in the world - from Vogue's Anna Wintour to author Tom Wolfe, for more than 50 years. The juxtaposition between Bill's simple apartment filled with file cabinets, a cot in the corner and a communal bathroom down the hall and the excess and glamour of the people he photographs daily gives the viewer much food for thought on finding happiness in life's simplicities. I teared up several times during this heart-warming film about a man who lives his passion fully, practically and always with love. Great way to spend a Friday night at home. It's now ON DEMAND on your local cable network!
