Stanley Kubrick’s Photos of New York Life in the 40s

Stanley Kubrick was one of America’s most influential filmmakers. But his special skill behind the camera and his ability to create visual intrigue were evident long before he became a Hollywood icon. At the age of 18 Kubrick joined the Look magazine and became the youngest staff photographer in the magazine’s history. He continued to work for Look until 1950 when he left to pursue film making. Here are some of his iconic photographs of New York life in the 40s, taken for Look magazine.
