Trailer: ‘Everybody Street’ Documentary Chronicles NYC Street Photography

There’s no doubt about that fact that street photography is wildly interesting. There’s just so much to it that makes it appealing. Real people, real moments — good and bad. Best of all, there’s something new to capture every day. And while many of us don’t have the courage to get out there and point our camera at a stranger, it’s interesting to see it happen, especially in a metropolis.

Filmmaker Cheryl Dunn (who is a street photographer herself) is working on a documentary called Everybody Street, which features the master street photographers in America’s most populated city — New York City. The trailer above gives a taste of what it’s about (note: it’s slightly NSFW).

The film has been in the works for a while, and got its start on Kickstarter a couple of years ago, securing a little over $45,000 in a 30-day funding period.

The film includes stories from 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, Boogie, Max Kozloff and Luc Sante.


Everybody Street hasn’t secured distribution yet, but the film trailer should get you primed for the (hopefully soon) release.

    I’m sure everyone that funded this on Kickstarter (me included) is sick of waiting! It was supposed to be delivered back in 2012 February. The sad part is the lack of respect for those who funded this, not getting answers from the creators on what happened and what’s happening.

    And sadly also is that this is happening with a lot of the Kickstarter projects, stopped believing it a long time ago!

    Looking forward to seeing this. I met Jeff Mermelstein on the Subway a few weeks ago – nice guy,

    wow, got to admit, 18 month delay is pretty big. if there’s a lack of communication, even more so.

    The film has already been doing the festival circuit for at least 6 months – I saw the film at Toronto Hot Docs. Pretty good actually. I’m glad someone has done a cool film like this, though I wish it featured more photographers. Very cool film nonetheless.

    So you’ve already seen it but the people who FUNDED it haven’t had that chance, extremely disrespectful on the producers part. I look forward to pirating it, F them.
