Photo Booth, the photo blog of The New Yorker magazine, has been running video interviews with street photographers, excerpted from Cheryl Dunn’s documentary “Everybody Street,” which was shown as part of the  “Alfred Stieglitz New York” exhibition at the Seaport Museum in Manhattan.

It’s hard to choose a favorite from all the clips, but we certainly enjoyed hearing Bruce Davidson talk about why he stopped shooting fashion, and how, early in his career, he lived “like a monk” in an apartment with a combination kitchen/darkroom. That was convenient, he says, because he could eat “frozen Hershey bars and chicken” while he printed.

The trailer for “Everybody Street,” available on Dunn’s Vimeo page along with other excerpts from the documentary, features highlights of her interviews  with Joel Meyerowitz, Mary Ellen Mark, Bruce Gilden and other street photographers.
