Film: Inspiring trailer for New York street photography doc Everybody Street

Posted by Liv Siddall,

“It’s the only tool that will stop time,” quips one of the photographers in this trailer, and I don’t think anything has made me want to pick up a camera more than that. The trailer itself is for documentary Everybody Street, which is made up of stills and interviews revealing the darkness and the joy seen through the lens of some of the world’s most famous street photographers.

Featuring interviews with the likes of Jill Freedman, Bruce Gilden, Mary Ellen Mark, Jeff Mermelstein, Clayton Patterson, Ricky Powell and Martha Cooper among others, Everybody Street “pays tribute to the spirit of street photography through a cinematic exploration of New York City, and captures the visceral rush, singular perseverance and at times immediate danger customary to these artists.”

One of my personal highlights was when Jill Freedman says “certain range-finders are magnificent weapons.”
