Everybody Street by Cheryl Dunn

Everybody Street, A Documentary project in New York, NY by Cheryl Dunn

Watch the video..its brilliant!



Everybody Street" is an invaluable treasure-chest of knowledge and insight into the art of photography and the City of New York. I know you will enjoy seeing it as much as I am loving making it. This is a rare opportunity for you to participate in not only the making of a film, but in the recording of art history.

"Hello photographers, photography enthusiasts, lovers of history and New York City. My name is Cheryl Dunn and I am a fellow photographer and the director of "Everybody Street", a feature documentary about NYC street photographers who have taken some of the most iconic images of the last century. Whether you take pictures with your phone or a Leica, you will relish the opportunity to hear the real stories of the men and women who are the very foundation of the street photography movement and of the medium itself. These include, to date:

Bruce Davidson Joel Meyerwitz , Mary Ellen Mark, Max Kozloff, Ricky Powell, Martha Cooper, Jamal Shabazz, Bruce Gilden, Clayton Patterson, Jeff Mermelstein, Rebecca Lepkoff Boogie, Luc Sante, Jill Freedman, Josh Wildman.

The film, shot in16mm and in HD, and with a score by NYC Band Endless Boogie, takes you into the studios and out onto the streets where you will see firsthand the working techniques of these incredible artists as they unfold in the theater of New York City. Many of my subjects have never been documented before, remaining instead hidden behind their cameras. "
