Bill Cunningham
[Fashion photographer, b. 1929, Boston, Massachusetts, d. 2016, New York.]

 You’ve got to stay on the street and let the street tell you what is. There are no shortcuts, believe me. 
 You see, if you don’t take money, they can’t tell you what to do, kid. That’s the key to the whole thing. Don’t touch money. 
 I don’t pay attention to celebrities. I don’t photograph them. They don’t dress so… interestingly. They have stylists. I prefer real women who have their own taste. 
 I’m not drawn to something awful. I wouldn’t even see that. I’m looking for something that has beauty. 
 It’s not what I think. It’s what I see. 
 He who seeks beauty will find it. 
 Listen, chile, who has time to worry about that when there’s so much to photograph? 
 I’ve got to face the bullet very quickly. If it doesn’t have enough depth, I should wait.
