In 1945, a young Stanley Kubrick graduated from high school and almost immediately started working for LOOK Magazine as a photojournalist, becoming the youngest staff photographer in the magazine’s history. It’s during this period that Kubrick began to master his visual craft and produced some stunning images. Now, more than 65 years later, you can purchase … or simply browse through … Kubrick’s photographic work for the first time.
Working with curators from the Museum of the City of New York, VandM.com has selected 25 images to showcase (out of a larger collection of 10,000 images). Photos include prizefighter Walter Cartier in the corner between rounds; the elegant actress Betsy Von Furstenberg reading in a window; street scenes from New York City; and a young woman walking down a steep set of stairs while carrying a pile of books, all rather precariously.
You can browse the full collection here, or visit another set of Kubrick images, all taken in Chicago.
