Looking for an NPR video about an aggressive NYC street photographer.

Some time within the last six months, I saw an NPR video about a man in NYC who photographs pedestrians. His style was very aggressive: he'd conceal his camera and flash until he was within a foot of his subject, then go in very quickly for a close-up. He's an older guy and he's been doing this at least since the 1970's. His demeanor was decidedly crotchety in the style of the stereotypical New Yorker.
I've been googling around for this story (which I could swear I found on MeFi originally) with no luck. Anyone have any ideas?
(I ask because I saw him working in Times Square today and followed him around for a while.)
