“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour.
The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair.

Family Polaroid GIFspiration

Artist and illustrator Cari Vander Yacht is slicing up your grandparents. Or at least their photos. Going one step beyond artists like Martin Parr who simply collect old family photo albums from attics and flea markets, the Amsterdam-based Vander Yacht is making her vintage finds into delightfully irreverent GIFs. Several of her best mini-animations seem to be from China in the 1980s, adding an extra layer of humor for those of us on this side of the Great Firewall. See a selection below, and more at her Tumblr.
