Everybody Street - A Street Photography Documentary (2013)

"Everybody Street is a new documentary featuring iconic street photographers such as Ricky Powell, Martha Cooper, Jamel Shabazz, and Jamel Freedman - all of whom managed to capture the raw essence of New York City through its artists, graffiti writers, junkies, and street people. The film is directed by Cheryl Dunn, a photographer who has been documenting NYC for over two decades herself. 'It is pure and uncontrollable and it takes an intense commitment,' she says when speaking to the New Yorker. 'I feel it reveals a thread in humanity that is random and true and hard to capture.' Everybody Street premiered this year at Hot Docs International Film Festival in Canada and is set for release this Autumn."
