The passing of a legend.

Bill Cunningham, a street-style photographer for the New York Times who memorialized so many trends and fashion movements over the years, has died. He was 87 years old.

He had been hospitalized recently, and had suffered a stroke prior to his death.

Cunningham, pictured above in the 1970s, worked for the Times for nearly 40 years as a photographer. He meticulously chronicled fashion trends and effectively became a cultural anthropologist in doing so.

With his work, he also captured broader societal trends through fashion — as the Times themselves put it, through capturing the essence of Americans' movement from formality in fashion into a more individualistic, diffuse aesthetic.

Forty years of incredible, passionate work will be duly missed.

RIP, Mr. Cunningham.
