Documentaries about photography we've watched lately

Gregory Crewsdon: Brief encounters
Acclaimed photographer Gregory Crewdson’s 10-year quest to create a series of haunting, surreal, and stunningly elaborate portraits of small-town American life — filmed with unprecedented access as he makes perfect renderings of a disturbing, imperfect world.

Bill Cunningham: New York
A cinematic profile of the noted veteran New York City fashion photographer.

Bert Stern: Original Madman

In the unconventional documentary Becoming Bert Stern, the original mad-man photographer reveals himself for the first time. Berts meteoric career began as a mailroom-boy at Look Magazine, where he formed a close relationship with a young staff photographer, Stanley Kubrick. Photographing what seemed like all of worlds most beautiful women like Jean Shrimpton, Suzie Parker, Audrey Hepburn, Bridget Bardot, Twiggy, Liz Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe, the kid from Brooklyn was living a dream.

5 Broken Cameras
Although he first bought a camera to film his family, Emad Burnat soon turns it to the frightening scenes taking place in his Palestinian village, the target of Israeli settlers. He continues filming over five years, in a film richly deserving of its many awards.
