Photographer, Bill Cunningham, who documented changing fashions on the streets of New York, died on Saturday at the age of 87.

His death followed a brief hospitalisation after having a stroke. Cunningham worked for The New York Times for nearly 40 years, riding his bicycle through Midtown Manhattan, where he did most of his field work and photographing the city’s changing dress habits. He particularly loved eccentrics but also had a unique talent for spotting new trends and smart and stylish dressers. Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, commented in the 2010 documentary film Bill Cunningham New York,  ‘We all get dressed for Bill.’
