Cheryl Dunn (featured yesterday) made a compelling hour and a half documentary on Street Photography, called “Everybody Street” – this is a half hour taster.
It features the work (among others) of Ricky Powell, Jamel Shabazz, Mary Ellen Mark, Rebecca Lepkoff, the Photo League, Clayton Patterson, Bruce Gilden, Max Kozloff (art historian), Henri Cartier-Bresson, Garry Winogrand, Sylvia Plachy, Helen Levitt, Diane Arbus, Joel Meyerhowitz, Jeff Mermelstein, Jill Freedman, “Boogie”, Martha Cooper, Bruce Davidson…
The short interviews are snappy and insightful:
“Digital manipulation kills photography” – Elliot Erwin
“Digital photography and the web have made it truly the democratic, worldwide, universal medium. Everybody’s a photographer now! We’re going to find geniuses. Geniuses are going to be awakened by this opportunity to make pictures with their cell phone or their camera – because they can see the results right away…. sure there’s a lot of crap but I think there’e also genius waiting to be discovered.” – Joel Meyerhowitz
