“I used to work with Bill when he did his fashion coverage at Visionaire. He’s a morning person. So, the night before, I would go to bed with print outs of his pages and a pen next to me so when he called very early in the morning (while I was still asleep) I’d be ready to take notes immediately,” remembers Cecilia Dean.
Since the beginning of Visionaire in 1991, the original street photographer and living legend Bill Cunningham has contributed to our issues. A total of 11 Visionaires has his name credited and to this day our founding fathers–Cecilia, James and Stephen–have a close relationship to the now 85 year old New Yorker. Take a look at some of the amazing images he has contributed and wish him a happy 85th birthday!
