Immerse Yourself in the World of

the Beloved Street Fashion Photographer

Open through Oct 30, 2021. Buy tickets at timesofbill.com and use FRIENDOFBILL for $5 off.

Mood lighting, spoken audio, music, interactive moments, soundscapes and evocative imagery combine to create the immersive experience.

Opportunity: When the theatrical release of Mark Bozek's documentary about the late street fashion photographer Bill Cunningham was derailed because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Bozek began to think about new ways the documentary could reach audiences.

Solution: In conversations with ESI Design, Bozek and his team at Live Rocket Studios landed on an immersive experience. The installation brings the beloved documentarian’s career and keen eye to life with a range of dynamic experiences — from a grand staircase where guests’ outfits are digitally transformed into a one-of-a-kind fashion statement to an ever-changing gallery revealing the surprising links between the sartorial trends captured by Cunningham and today’s latest street styles.

Unfolding over two stories, 18,000-square-feet, and six distinct spaces, the multi-sensory installation features large-scale reproductions of Cunningham’s most iconic photos, video and audio interviews, artifacts like Cunningham’s iconic Biria bicycle and his trademark blue French worker’s jacket, and sounds that capture the energy of New York City’s streets.

Along the journey, guests can pose on a simulated city crosswalk where Cunningham took many of his photographs, or take a seat on a bench made of milk crates and a foam mattress — a nod to the photographer’s bed in his Carnegie Hall studio apartment.

Result: TimeOut New York called the exhibit a “must see event.” Open through Oct 30, 2021. Buy tickets at timesofbill.com and use FRIENDOFBILL for $5 off.
