Eyes Wide Open

Before Stanley Kubrick’s rise to fame as a filmmaker, he was a photojournalist for Look magazine. He began in 1945—when he was just 17 years old—and spent the next five years as a full-time photographer with the magazine.

I had no idea. But that’s what makes traveling to New York City so interesting. I discovered Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs at the Museum of the City of New York while visiting its Pentagram-designed permanent installation New York at Its Core (also a must-see).

Kubrick’s black and white images demonstrate an eye for capturing interesting subjects and a knack for visual storytelling. His experience at Look seems to have informed his future career as a motion picture director of such classics as 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, and The Shining.
