Kubrick Way Before 2001

In 1946, an eighteen year old Stanley Kubrick got a gig as an apprentice photographer at Look Magazine.  He stayed at Look until 1950, when we left to devote all of his energies to film making.  We all know what a gain this was for cinema – what some of us don’t know is what a loss it was for stills photography.

The Museum of the City of New York has partnered with VandM gallery to offer numbered prints selected from Kubrick’s archives.   At $250 for an 11 x 14, the price is not too astronomical – and all proceeds go the museum.

Check out the prints in this beautiful full screen slideshow from aCurator magazine.
