Stanley Kubrick Photography – 1940s New York

In his pre blockbuster days Stanley Kubrick found himself taking snaps on the streets of 1940s New York. Age 17 he sold his first piece to Look magazine and soon found himself on their books as a freelance photojournalist.  “From 1946 to 1950, Kubrick worked for the magazine, completing more than 300 assignments documenting the sights and people of New York City”. With an obvious filmic quality to this early work, these shots are full of drama, movement and the sense of a storyline in motion. More at The Inspiration Grid.
