Photography On Film: "Everybody Street" x Cheryl Dunn

"The Street is constantly evolving" says documentary maker and photographer Cheryl Dunn, who has put together a film about life on the streets of New York which fuses people-watching with visually captivating imagery by pioneering photographers renowned for capturing life as it happens in the city that never sleeps.

From iconic street photographers such as Bruce Davidson with his Harlem tales, to Elliott Erwitt's candid black & white shots which master the art of Henri Cartier-Bresson's "decisive moment", Dunn has trawled old haunts and archives to piece together this feature-length historical exploration of New York life through a lens.

Also featured in the documentary are photographers Joel Meyerowitz, Rebecca Lepkoff, Mary Ellen Mark and Bruce Gilden, noted for his notorious, merciless and indiscriminate use of the flash when shooting his signature strong characters.

Dunn - whose work has been exhibited at MoCA and OHWOW, has already shown the film at London's Tate Modern - watch the official trailer below courtesy of NOWNESS.
