Some Binge Worthy Photography Documentaries


If you're anything like me, most of your time not spent working, sleeping, or eating, is used to watch movies or shows on Netflix and the like. So with that being said I've compiled a list of some of my most binge-worthy photography movies for your viewing pleasure.

The B-Side Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography 

A beautiful documentary about portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman and her use of a unique 20x24 Polaroid Land Camera. One of I believe two such camera's in existence this documentary tells the story of Elsa's use of the famous and enormous camera.

My affinity for Vivian Maier aside, this documentary details the true life story of how Vivian's work was found and brought to the attention of the public. A beautiful and sad film about a woman who may or may not have wanted her work to ever be seen.
