This is the time I met Andy Warhol​ on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street – he told me he was a watcher of my cable TV show – still on the air 32 years later and at the same time – coming on in 20 minutes on MNN TV Ch. 1 and streaming worldwide, Jon Hammond​ Show Manhattan Neighborhood Network​ Channel 1

Andy Warhol (/ˈwɔrhɒl/;[1] born Andrew Warhola; August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987) was an American artist who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture, and advertisement that flourished by the 1960s. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became a renowned and sometimes controversial artist. The Andy Warhol Museum in his native city, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, holds an extensive permanent collection of art and archives. It is the largest museum in the United States dedicated to a single artist

Jon Hammond: I’ve been seeing NY Times’ Bill Cunningham since 1986 up on the corner of 57th St. and Fifth Avenue taking pictures, and recently I noticed he is shooting a digital Nikon camera – welcome to the digital world Bill Cunningham! – JH

New York NY — Famous People Photograper Bill Cunningham who shoots almost daily on corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th St. This is a guy who shoots people candidly, yet he has an aversion to being on-camera himself. He is quite adept at slinking away and moving in back of you anytime your lens levels off in his direction. I’ve seen the man for years and he has always done that, my first shots of him date back to 1985. Here I got him on-camera just this morning – Bill Cunningham shot by Jon Hammond
William J. Cunningham (born March 13, 1929) is a fashion photographer for The New York Times, known for his candid and street photography.

Cunningham dropped out of Harvard University in 1948 and moved to New York, where he initially worked in advertising. Not long after, he quit his job and struck out on his own, making hats under the name “William J.” After being drafted (causing his business to fold) and serving a tour in the U.S. Army, he returned to New York and got a job writing for the Chicago Tribune.
