Here's another movie I'm looking forward to checking out. Called "Everybody Street," it's a documentary about some of the most famous names in street photography including Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Jill Freedman, Bruce Gilden, Joel Meyerowitz, Mary Ellen Mark and many others.
The film, directed by Cheryl Dunn, premiered in Toronto this past spring at the HotDocs festival and below is the official trailer. While the documentary focuses on street photographers in New York City, the stories they share could apply to anyone who's fascinated with capturing life on the street.
"A slice of a moment, a thousandth of a second of recognition. It seemed to me that's what you photographed: the instantaneous gesture where life became clarified," Meyerowitz says in the film "I just knew I had to be out there, watching life, welcoming ambiguity and the surreal, even though it's chaos."
Put it on a double bill with one of the recent films about Vivian Meyer, and I can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon.
