      “Everybody Street” illuminates the lives and work of New York’s iconic street photographers and the incomparable city that has inspired them for decades. The documentary pays tribute to the spirit of street photography through a cinematic exploration of New York City, and captures the visceral rush, singular perseverance and at times immediate danger customary to these artists. Covering nine decades of street photography, “Everybody Street” explores the careers and influences of many notable photographers––a number of whom have never been documented, featuring: Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Jill Freedman, Bruce Gilden, Joel Meyerowitz, Rebecca Lepkoff, Mary Ellen Mark, Jeff Mermelstein, Clayton Patterson, Ricky Powell, Jamel Shabazz, Martha Cooper, and Boogie, with historians Max Kozloff and Luc Sante. http://everybodystreet.com

      • Leica & Magnum: The Spirit Lives Here by Bruce Gilden

        In our latest photo essay made in collaboration with Magnum Photos, we follow Bruce Gilden to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Bruce Gilden first traveled to Haiti in 1984 and made 19 trips over the course of 10 years, culminating in his book titled, quite simply, “Haiti”. In February and March 2010, he went back to Port-au-Prince to witness firsthand what had happened in the wake of the earthquake. What he found was a city destroyed and people who are poor of everything but grace, pride and a distinctive soul. During his most recent trip this past September, he went back to document a refugee camp that has sprung up across the street from the half-destroyed presidential palace in downtown Port-au-Prince. In this video, Gilden shares his audio, video and photo captures of this neighborhood of decorated huts built out of scavenged corrugated tin and cardboard, recreated with all the elements of Haitian life as if the people knew right away that this temporary settlement would be their long term home.

                Photographer Bruce Gilden's childhood in Brooklyn endowed him with a keen eye for observing urban behaviors and customs. The strong dynamic forms and graphic quality of his images and his unconventional confrontational style distinguish Gilden's original vision. Gilden has received numerous grants and awards for his work including three National Endowments for the Arts fellowships, a Vila Medicis Hors les Murs, New York State Foundation for the Arts Grant, the European Award for Photography and a Japan Foundation Fellowship. In 1998, Gilden became a member of Magnum. Interview: Catherine Camille Cushman Camera: Noah David Smith Kenny Dixon Editor: Catherine Camille Cushman +

                  After the Soviet Union fell apart, the big shots once in charge of organized Russian crime vanished, either dead or unleashed through the world, and small potato villains have survived on the periphery of large cities in a now cleaned up Russian wild West. No limos, no bodyguards, no tailored suits and trophy girlfriends for Sergey, the boss and his goons Dimitry, Anatoly and Vassilly. Far away from Moscow and close to Siberia, outside Yekaterinburg, they just try to make a living and pay for their vodka out of a few shake downs and small “problem solving.” Always keeping in mind the famous Russian proverb: “The sooner you get to prison, the sooner you’ll get free.”

                      My work on foreclosed homes in Detroit has actually been a continuation of a project that started in Fort Myers, Florida in September 2008. For me the major concentration of the work is on the houses or what’s left of the houses. I chose to photograph them mostly straight on like my street work in a very blunt fashion. To let the houses speak for themselves. After going to Florida and continuing in Detroit I realized that foreclosure is one part of a circle. There is homelessness, job loss, economic difficulties, etc, etc, etc. In Detroit the problem is not only a sub-prime problem it’s a problem of people who lost their jobs. And this has been going on for many years. So it’s a much more serious situation. When I went to Detroit – even though I had known that the city was pretty desolate – I was amazed that a major city in America in 2009 can look like this. Certain areas look like Berlin after World War II or like Beirut. Something is wrong here. Recently I have read books and articles and watched television shows on the foreclosure problem. How can you have a trillion dollar industry that’s not regulated? This was a scam from the beginning – that’s not to say that some homeowners aren’t at fault also, one of the problems is giving mortgages to people who have a history of no credit or of bad credit. A big problem in Detroit was people refinancing their mortgages and not being able to keep up with their monthly payments. Something is very wrong with a policy like this. But when I arrived in Detroit I saw a city government that does not take care of its people and a lot of those people have stopped caring. I mean I don’t care what the excuse is – how do you leave so many buildings that are almost totally destroyed standing. Kids can get hurt playing in them, it’s a breeding ground for drugs and prostitution. Property values go down, nobody wants to live in these areas, To me it almost seems like they are left standing so that one day they drive everybody out and grand new subdivisions can be made. What was really sad for me in Detroit was that many of the destroyed houses were well made and beautiful houses at one time, they were like Grande Dames. Detroit at one time had the highest standard of living for blue collar workers because of the auto industry. It’s all gone. This makes the destruction even sadder, it’s not like a dilapidated trailer in ruins. There was an elegance here – the houses were beautiful – it’s so sad. There were serious memories in these houses, people lived there for 50 – 70 years. When these houses were built there was pride in craftsmanship and you saw it in the houses. It’s sad.
