Bill Cunningham Dead - Fashion Photographer Dies at 87

Bill Cunningham, a well-known fashion photographer, has died at age 87.

The legendary photographer recently suffered a stroke and had been hospitalized.

Cunningham published photo essays in The New York Times for the past 40 years. He was named a living landmark by the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2009 and a documentary was even made about him in 2010.

“His company was sought after by the fashion world’s rich and powerful, yet he remained one of the kindest, most gentle and humble people I have ever met,” the Times‘ publisher and chairman, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr., said in a statement. “We have lost a legend, and I am personally heartbroken to have lost a friend.”

We send our condolences to Bill‘s loved ones and everyone who admired his work during this difficult time.
