A documentary tribute to the spirit of street photography through a cinematic exploration of New York City, capturing the visceral rush, singular perseverance, and at times immediate danger these artists face in pursuit of a perfect shot.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
I like docs about photography. After all, cinema is, essentially, 24 photographs per second, a photographic art. I do prefer not to look at people sitting and talking, that isn't cinematic. There wasn't a lot of that in this, but any is too much for me. People sitting around talking should be on a radio program, not film. That said, this is quite good if you like docs about photography.
A great variety of photographers, such interesting voices giving an insight into how they follow their instincts, see the city and snap snap snap what appeals to their hearts. So much thanks to these brave men and women, letting us see too. Also including an interesting debate about film v digital photography...A brilliant film.
Rassemble des grandes pointures de la street photographie en Amérique. Passionnant bien qu'un peu bourratif dans son principe. Réalisation trop carrée mais certains témoignages sont inestimables. Instructif.
I love photography and I love documentaries so for me this film gave me butterflies. It's important that we remember the skill and hard work that is put in to this art form instead of pulling out a mobile or DSLR and instantly creating the image we want. Major thumbs up to Cheryl Dunn. I truly adored this film.
ideal para cualquier persona que tenga ganas de ser fotografo, ya que esto puede servir de inspiración, mostrando historias reales de fotografos famosos de NY, a modo personal encontre bueno el documental, aunque debieron hacer o mostrar de otras ciudades, al final es un poco de lo mismo pero con diferentes objetivos... pero aun así es entretenido y motivador
history of street photography, history of New York, our attitude to privacy put into historical perspective; various styles of photography and of photographing. all in all, informative and thought-provoking
