Stanley Kubrick: NYC subway photographer

Stanley Kubrick: NYC subway photographer

Previously we shared 10 facts about director Stanley Kubrick you might’ve not known. As an addendum to that I want to add that did you know that prior to his film career, Kubrick worked as a staff photographer for LOOK Magazine? LOOK was a bi-weekly, a la LIFE, magazine, which ran from 1937 to 1971. Kubrick completed over 300 assignments between 1946 and 1951. As a New York City resident, the one that fascinates me the most is his gig covering New York City subway straphangers in 1946.
