EVERYBODY STREET illuminates the lives and work of New York’s iconic street photographers and the frantic, bustling and dynamic city that has inspired them for decades.
Shot in the course of three years and directed by renowned photographer and documentary maker Cheryl Dunn, the film combines archival footage and compelling interviews with a staggering selection of iconic and evocative NY street life impressions.
Through meetings with some of the most famous New York street photographers still active today, the director discusses the spirit of street photography and the creative (and often obsessive) relationship of these photographers with the city and the people they’ve chosen as subject of their gaze.
With a dazzling mix of intriguing personal stories and extraordinary images, EVERYBODY STREET creates a kaleidoscopic portrait of New York City, while discussing the history of street photography though the thoughts and work of some of its masters.
