Fucking Awesome: Stanley Kubrick’s New York Photos

Right out of Doctor Strangelove

Anyone who’s a film nerd (a proud title that I held in the past before life got busy) has watched at least one film by epic film maker Stanley Kubrick. Taking cues from Hitchcock, with his own unique and frequently dark style, Kubrick dominated film though much of the 1950s and 60s, but little did I know that before he started his illustrious film career (giving us movies like Dr. Strangelove, Lolita, the Shining, Clockwork Orange, Space Odyssey) he took photographs for Look Magazine.

His photographs offer an intriguing look at Kubrick’s style and it’s amazing how many photographs are either reminiscent of scenes from films he would later produce or already display Kubrick’s iconic style. Check out the full collection at VandM.

  1. I’m a big fan of his work. There’s an interesting creative connection between Kubrick and Ballard. Great post.
