PLOT: Everybody Street | By Jian DeLeon | Published in: THE GQ EYE, New York, on November 11, 2013.
The documentary Everybody Street, directed by Cheryl Dunn and produced by Lucy Cooper (whose previous credits include Hesher and Transamerica) premieres today at Brooklyn's Nitehawk Cinema. It charts the trajectory of some of New York's most iconic "street photographers," covering nine decades of people attempting to capture the metropolis' unique energy on film.
Featuring acclaimed names like Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Jill FreedmanClayton Patterson, Ricky Powell, Jamel Shabazz, and Martha Cooper, historians Max Kozloff and Luc Sante provide context for their images. Not to be confused with "street style," the seminal work of these photographers illuminates an evolving New York City, shining a lens on the gritty dark side while also highlighting the glimmers of beauty and hope that often go unnoticed in the din of the hustle and bustle. Below is a bonus interview with artist Clayton Patterson, whose work has focused mainly on Manhattan's Lower East Side.
