You see, if you don’t take money they can’t tell you what to do. That’s the key to the whole thing, don’t touch money! It’s the worst thing you can do. Money is the cheapest thing. Liberty is the most expensive.

Superstar NY Times Street Fashion Photographer Bill Cunningham explaining why he didn’t accept payment for the 100 page spreads of photographs he shot for the original Details magazine in the late 80’s. From the documentary Bill Cunningham New York.

I just saw this movie & it was super inspiring. Dude lived in a rent controlled small, no-frills room/studio in carnegie hall with a shared bathroom & no kitchen since the 40s. He never eats or drinks at any events he works at out of principle and even quit Women’s Wear Daily because they used his pictures as “Do’s & Don’ts”, when he felt all of them were do’s. He’s a very hardworking man that’s just all about loving clothes and being positive.
