Bill Cunningham Doc, Sundance, Toy DSLR: Photo Feed 1/21
Posted by David Ozanich — 21 Jan 2011
- Color me obsessed, but I can't get enough Bill Cunningham. His weekly "On The Street" fashion coverage for the New York Times is a highlight of my week, every week.
The groovy new website for the upcoming documentary film "Bill Cunningham: New York" just launched. The film's been making the rounds on the film festival circuit lately and is finally getting a proper theatrical distribution starting March 16th at Film Forum in New York and then on March 25th at Nuart in Los Angeles. It will continue on from there. It won't let me embed the trailer here, but I recommend you watch it at the website. Anna Wintour is involved and it's fabulous.
- In honor of Bill and street photography, here's a guide to "NYC's Hottest Subway Routes: 36 Saucy Snaps" which looks for hotties making their morning commutes.
- And a little more movie news for your Friday: Canon is debuting a collaborative film called "The Story Behind the Still" on Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. More from Photography Blog:
"The Story Beyond the Still" began as a year-long contest, launched in January 2010 on Vimeo that allowed photographers and videographers to showcase their creativity in a new style of filmmaking that blended still and video images into a continuous cinematic piece begun by Canon Explorer of Light, Vincent Laforet. The complete short film, including the final chapter starring The Breakfast Club star, Judd Nelson, will be viewed in its entirety at this private event during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. It will then publicly première on 7th February on the Sundance Channel and Vimeo.
Ooh! Judd Nelson!
- Here's a new coffee-table photo book from Adrian Acosta called Invasion of the Pines documenting the annual drag extravaganza on Fire Island.
- Cute! It's a pint-sized toy DSLR camera that comes with swappable lenses.
- Gawker is offering up this cool AP photo of a Boeing Delta 4 Heavy rocket launching from California yesterday.
