Stanley Kubrick: New York in the 40's

Before Stanley Kubrick, the director, there was Stanley Kubrick, the photographer. In 1945, at the age of 17, Kubrick sold one of his photos to Look magazine, a few months later he joined the staff as a photographer. He worked for Look until 1950 when he decided to make a career in filmmaking. Not surprisingly there is something of his movies in these photographs, the composition, the lighting, the drama.
