Street photography began in Paris, but it reached its apogee in New York, led by such giants as Helen Levitt, Robert Frank, and Garry Winogrand, and, as this vibrant survey attests, the tradition is still going strong. In a labor of love, director Charyl Dunn spent three years following thirteen leading practitioners of the art, including Boogie (junkies), Martha Cooper (graffiti), Jill Freedman (cops), Bruce Davidson (subways), Bruce Gilden (Coney Island), Ricky Powell (art scenesters), and Jamel Shabazz (hip-hop culture). Dunn dives right in, providing street photography of her street photographers, as well as evocative interludes that testify to the enduring vitality of the form. “It’s wonderful, snappy and inspiring.” Rolo Romig, The New Yorker.
