Bill Cunningham & DETAILS Magazine, 1982–90

For readers of the weekend style section of the New York Times, Bill Cunningham (1929–2016) was a perennial presence in two of the paper’s most popular weekly picture columns: On the Street, a sharp-eyed compendium of the fashion he encountered on the street; and Evening Hours, a compilation of portraits of society figures at New York philanthropic fund-raisers.
