El famoso Street style photographer Bill que empezó tomando sus increíbles fotos con una cámara que costaba $35 dólares, no diferenciaba entre famosos y no famosos si no en lo que las personas expresaban a través de su ropa y por 50 años siguió este patrón, si tu estilo llamaba su atención, discretamente iba a tomarte una fotografía, y si tenías suerte podrías ser publicado en el área de estilo del New York Times.

Un día dijo que su interés por la moda empezó en la iglesia: “Nunca podía concentrarme los Domingos en misa porque me concentraba en los sombreros de las señoras.”

Bill era una persona simple, se vestía con una chaqueta de trabajador color azul, sus pantalones kaki y tenis negros y se iba por toda la ciudad esquivando a los taxistas de Nueva York en su bici.

The famous street style photographer, Bill who stated with a half-frame camera that cost $35, wouldn’t differentiate between famous and non-famous people instead he would just see what they express through their clothing and for 50 years he followed that pattern.

If your style caught his attention he would cautiously take a picture of you and if you were lucky enough you could be published in his column on the New York Times style column.

He said his interest in fashion began in church: “I could never concentrate on Sunday church services because I’d be concentrating on women’s hats.”

Bill was a lowly person, he dressed with a blue worker jacket, and khaki pants with black shoes and was always riding around New York his bike.
