This is so neat! Bill Cunningham (the sweetest man, who photographs for the New York Times) included CVD’s Newport Vintage Dance Week in his “Fond Farewell to 2012” photo spread. Even cooler, one of the pictures he took of “the young set” is top and center! Look, there I am on the left! We were doing a silly Charleston, though I’m not sure that totally helps explain our positions… but we do look like we’re having fun, anyway. I am so pleased to be included in an event on the same page as these other big name events. It’s really cool! Check it out below, or click here to see the full page.
Once again, Bill Cunningham, I am honored to say thank you!
If you missed out, or just want to re-live the awesomeness, I posted lots of posts about Newport Vintage Dance Week a few months ago, including lovely pictures of the balls and teas as well as two other all Newport Vintage Dance Week photo spreads from Bill Cunningham that were in the New York Times. You can see all of them by clicking here.
Newport Vintage Dance Week 2012 made it into the New York Times! There were two spreads of Bill Cunningham’s photos. How fabulous is that?
Wow! There was also a video (really a slide show) of images with Bill Cunningham speaking in the background about the week. You can view the video here on the New York Times website. Even just his voice gives you a feeling for Bill Cunningham’s wonderful attention to all of the attendees at Newport. Here are just a few pictures of him taking photos of us. If you’ve been reading my previous blog posts about Newport you will have seen these before…
Thanks Bill Cunningham! This marks the end of the marathon of awesome-ness that was Newport. Don’t worry, though, there are plenty of other awesome adventures coming soon and in the far future! Thanks for sharing with me!
I also want to mention, as a final note to this post, that this is my 100th post on this blog! Time flies when you’re having fun! Here’s to another 100 posts!
