Hello Photographers [x] Photography Enthusiasts ~ Lovers of History [x] New York City
My name is Cheryl Dunn and I’m 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.
The film ~ shot on 16mm and High Definition cameras ~ 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.
The short that I initially made received such a warm reception that I felt it my mission to get it to a wider audience. After being invited to show the short at the Tate Modern Museum in London ~ I spent the summer shooting more incredible photographers and street scenes. With the attention this garnered ~ we now have the amazing opportunity to record some additional ~ pivotal scenes with unprecedented access. In addition, I have been lucky enough to hire the talented editor David Zeiff The Cove, Some Kind of Monster, Crazy Love to bring it on home.
With your help, I will be able to complete this final phase with the respect and quality that these talented artists deserve.
