Really, too many to mention. Google any well known photographer, and you'll come up with more than you'll have time for.

Lately, there seem to be a lot of Martin Parr vids around. I've liked some on Garry Winogrand. While I don't like his work, I've found a video about Bruce Gilden. Obviously, my interest is public photography.

I loved Bill Cunningham New York. What a fascinating character, available on netflix.

Not a documentary per se, but a great presentation from one of my favorite "non-public" photographers, Jessica Todd Harper:

"In this unflinching documentary chronicling the genocide in Darfur, former Marine Capt. Brian Steidle is forever transformed by the atrocities he witnesses as a military observer for the African Union."

this is a really good one
