Honour the work of late street style photographer Bill Cunningham at Apple's Photo Walk

Meeting of minds

Honour the work of late street style photographer Bill Cunningham at Apple's Photo Walk
Apple brings together The Times of Bill filmmaker Mark Bozek, local lensman Aik Beng Chia, and Esquire Singapore associate fashion editor Eugene Lim to commemorate the late legend — and you're invited

There are few whose work are impactful beyond their lifetime. Fewer, who led lives worth documenting. When considering both subsets, Bill Cunningham's name comes to mind.

Many ascribe Tommy Ton for the dawn of street style photography, but before Ton was Cunningham — the once milliner and writer most celebrated for chronicling everyday style on the streets before the turn of the millenium. His tale is not to be told once, but twice in the last decade; most recently in Mark Bozek's soon-to-be-released film, The Times of Bill.

In light of its premiere, Apple is remembering the legend with a Photo Walk, an event that sees Bozek and local creatives — photographer Aik Beng Chia, said to embody Cunnhingham's spirit in his captures of Singapore's streets and associate fashion editor at Esquire Singapore, Eugene Lim — coming together for a dialogue on Cunningham's life and work on top of a screening of the film's trailer.

Lim tells Buro 24/7 Singapore what's to come, below:

Thereafter, the three personalities are to host a mile-long walk around Singapore, taking to the streets to photograph local style in the spirit of Cunningham's iconic practice.
