The Everybody Street trailer captures the "visceral rush" of shooting from the perspective of the medium's masters.

In 2011, photographer and director Cheryl Dunn sought Kickstarter help to produce a documentary that promises to capture "the visceral rush of being a NYC street photographer, from the masters who are the history of the medium."

With funding from the successful campaign, Dunn turned a well-received short into a full-length feature film, Everybody Street. The finished HD documentary tracks down iconic New York City street photographers like Jill Freedman, Bruce Davidson, and Martha Cooper, weaving between the city streets where moments are first captured and the studios where masterful techniques are revealed. 

Everybody Street premiered at the 2013 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in April and is now competing in the documentary category of the T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival in Warsaw, Poland, which runs from July 18 to 28. The team is currently working to arrange screenings in New York City this fall.
