This is the longest list ever collecting documentaries about the world of photography. However it is still incomplete. If you know anything not yet on the list, please send it to me to add to it!

Majority of this list of a collection of documentaries about photography has been originally published by PetaPixel in English. I only copied the most of them from their list, but I wanted to add some links for my readers not yet included in the original version. First of all the posts I wrote about some of these documentaries I already wrote about on my blog (either on the Hungarian or in the English version of it too) and I also wanted to add some Hungarian documentaries too to the collection. Of course I would be happy to include any new suggestions from visitors so don’t hesitate to send me if you have something to add.

Some stories mentioned on my blog before
