Everybody Street illuminates the lives and work of New York City’s iconic street photographers and the incomparable city that has inspired them for decades.

Filmed in New York City over the course of thee years, Everybody Street combines 16mm black and white film, HD, stills, and archival footage to create a filmic tapestry, interjecting a unique vision into the history of street photography.
Filmmaker and photographer Cheryl Dunn will be in attendance for an audience discussion.
