‘Everybody Street’ Documentary to Showcase NYC Street Photographers
In a digital age over-saturated with selfies and snapshots of the “best grilled cheese ever,” it’s refreshing to come across something like this. Celebrated filmmaker and photographer Cheryl Dunn has created an 83-minute documentary that applauds the true masters of street photography in New York City. The film sheds light on the lives and experiences of those behind the lens, spanning decades and an ever-changing urban landscape.
“Everybody Street” illuminates the lives and work of New York’s iconic street photographers and the incomparable city that has inspired them for decades. The documentary pays tribute to the spirit of street photography through a cinematic exploration of New York City, and captures the visceral rush, singular perseverance and at times immediate danger customary to these artists.
Featuring: Bruce Davidson , Elliott Erwitt, Jill Freedman, Bruce Gilden, Joel Meyerowitz, Rebecca Lepkoff, Mary Ellen Mark, Jeff Mermelstein, Clayton Patterson, Ricky Powell, Jamel Shabazz, Martha Cooper, Jeff Mermelstein, and Boogie, with Max Kozloff and Luc Sante.
The film is set to debut at the Hot Docs International Documentary Festival in Toronto; no word yet on a NYC screening, but we assume it’s only a matter of time. In the meantime, more detail on the documentary can be found here, and be sure to check out the inspiring trailer below.
