Top 100 Photography & Photographers Documentaries

(November 11, 2014)
Finding Vivian Maier Photo: History From Behind the Lens Men at Lunch
John Maloof's "Finding Vivian Maier" (2013), a documentary on the previously unknown Chicago street photographer Vivian Maier, is the most rented title in our Photography & Photographers section. The 12-part, six-hour French television series, "Photo: A History from Behind the Lens" is the runner-up followed by the Irish documentary, "Men at Lunch", which tells the story of the iconic 1932 photograph of 11 workers taking their lunch break while sitting on an iron beam high above NYC. We have a great selection of films about Photography & Photographers -- including titles about greats like Ansel Adams, Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bill Cunningham, Annie Leibovitz, Bert Stern and William Wegman. Seeing their work gives us not only an insight into the artist, but also a look at the time and place in which they created their photographs. What a great way to spend an afternoon!
