Before there were street style bloggers and Instagram stars, there was New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham, his camera and the city's stylish passersby. Now, even with decades in the business and a renowned career under his belt, Cunningham still lives by humble means, traversing Manhattan on his bicycle and snapping photographs in his signature, simple blue jacket. In celebration of the legendary photographer's 87th birthday today, here are 13 photos of him doing what he does best.
