Celebrated filmmaker and photographer Cheryl Dunn turns her lens on the pioneers and masters of NewYork street photography. Dunn profiles artists spanning six decades, including Bruce Davidson, Mary Ellen, Jill Freedman, Jeff Mermelstein and Martha Cooper, revealing that these shooters are as colourful and unique as the subjects they’ve relentlessly documented. Everybody Street is a definitive look at the iconic visionaries of this art form and pays tribute to the spirit of street photography through a cinematic exploration of New York City.
