Bill Cunningham has been “On the Street” for decades.
As a photojournalist for The New York Times,
this octogenarian with his signature blue construction worker jacket and khaki pants
becomes an anthropologist of fashion. . .street style.
A new documentary:
for Zeitgeist Films by Richard Press, premiers March 16th for two weeks at the New York’s Film Forum and at
The Nuart in Los Angeles on March 25th before opening around the country.

If you get tapped on the shoulder in New York City,
you want to turn around and find Scott Schuman with his camera, requesting to photograph you.
Most of my readers know of Scott Schuman’s 5 year old, daily, hit it out of the park blog;
This tapped from the streets, style and fashion photo blog was named in 2007
Time Magazine’s Design 100, as a major design influencer.
What peripatetic cameraman would not want that tag.
He chooses to photograph young and older, high fashion to industry worker chic.
Along with the great shots and the great style, The Sartorialist is a no snark zone!
Sunday Subliminals are about seeking out and exploring the best of the visual life.
Here is a 7 + minute documentary, directed by Tyler Manson,
about Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist leading his rarified visual life, from “the digital park bench.”

Catching an artist at work was the opportunity of photographer Laurie Lambrecht.
Lambrecht spent two years as a part-time assistant to Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein,
and was encouraged by him, to document his work process.
In this series of photographs, we get to see the interior of an inner world.
Read more about Lambrecht and Lichtenstein here.
To see Laurie’s photographs first hand, she is having two shows:
From the Studio of Roy Lichtenstein at the Griffin Museum of Photography, November 18, 2010 – January 23, 2011.
and In Roy Licthenstein’s Studio at Victoria Munroe Fine Art, November 4th, 2010 – December 4th, 2010.
(This just in! According to the New York Times, “Ohhh … Alright,” a 1964 painting by Roy Lichtenstein, sold for a record $42.6 million at the Christie’s postwar and contemporary art sale in New York on Wednesday. See more here.)
