ON THE STREET
WITH BILL CUNNINGHAM

 

JANUARY 12 – FEBRUARY 24, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, January 12, 6-9 pm

Location: COLORADO PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTS CENTER (1070 BANNOCK ST, DENVER, CO 80204)

The Colorado Photographic Arts Center is delighted to present an exhibition of photographs by the legendary New York Times street photographer Bill Cunningham. Cunningham was a constant presence on the streets of New York for nearly 50 years. He was first a designer of women’s hats before moving on to writing about fashion for Women’s Wear Daily and the Chicago Tribune. He began taking candid photographs on the streets of New York City, and his work drew the attention of The New York Times with a 1978 picture of Greta Garbo in an unguarded moment. Cunningham cultivated his own fashion signature, dressing in a uniform of black sneakers and a blue work man’s jacket, his only accessory a camera. He traveled throughout Manhattan by bicycle. He passed away in June 2016.
