Like many, my love affair with photography came from exploring the world around me with a camera. There’s something special about street photography, capturing moments in time, it’s a cross between a time machine and a cave painting. One day when we’re all gone there will remain the photograph as proof that we were here, proof that we existed.
Everybody Street is a new documentary on NYC street photography by the team All Day Every Day that digs into the minds of some of the most iconic NYC shooters of our time. It features candid interviews and some amazing work by Joel Meyerowitz, Bruce Gilden, Martha Cooper (who I had the pleasure to photograph) and others.
I never seen a real photographer work. I seen fashion photographers, but never a real photographer. – Joel Meyerowitz
