I just caught up with the trailer above, and I’ve got to say I’m excited about Everybody Street. It’s a look at street photographers who’ve been working in New York over the past few decades, long before Humans Of New York or street style blogs such as The Sartorialist rose to popularity. They’re photographers who’ve found the gritty, the sublime, and the human moments in the city over the years. The movie includes photos from, footage of, and interviews with 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 started as a kickstarter campaign and an old duckrabbit post seems to show that it was originally a 30-minute short documentary. Now, it’s an 83-minute documentary drawn from Cheryl Dunn‘s three years following these photographers around the streets. Here’s a recent interview with Dunn about the project.
The screenings page hasn’t been updated in a while, but here’s hoping the movie will be showing soon near you (and me!).
