DULUTH PHOTO CONTEST

To celebrate the opening of this brand new documentary on the documentary photographer, Bill Cunningham, the Zinema 2 and the Duluth News Tribune are hosting a photo contest. Submissions must be of a documentary nature capturing the everyday fashion on the streets of Duluth.

Prizes include:
- Dinner at Zietgiest Arts Cafe
- Movie at Zinema 2
- Photo featured in the Scrapbook section of the Duluth News Tribune
- Photo featured on the film’s website

The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evenin Hours.”

Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression time, place and individual flair.

In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.

{ Submit photos to bgraber@duluthnews.com }

Wouldn't you agree?

I guess you could send a question over to the dude that is collecting the images...

Now I'm really wishing I had gotten a good image of the woman wearing the Ushanka with a Sickle & Hammer emblem last month.
