Stanley Kubrick is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential film directors of all time. Less well-known is his photography. In 1945, fresh-faced 17-year-old Kubrick joined LOOK magazine where he worked for five years to photograph the everyday lives of New Yorkers.
His 15,000 photos capture the mundane, intimate and ordinary scenes of a bygone era, in a way that belied his young age. His photos of the New York subway are particularly striking in the way they depict the familiar: Standing women scowling at comfortably seated men, commuters engrossed in newspapers and young lovers holding each other tightly.
