Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs
The Museum of the City of New York has welcomed a new photography exhibition – Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs.
Before Stanley Kubrick became one of the most influential filmmakers of his time, a different kind of camera was the focus – pun unintended – of his teenage years. Like many other creatives and go-getters living in New York, Kubrick found inspiration in the city’s characters and settings, as diverse as they can be, capturing it on his camera for Look magazine.
Through a Different Lens touches on the lesser-known side of the director’s life, displaying Kubrick’s photos of the city’s nightclubs, street scenes and sporting events between 1945 and 1950. From his first published photo of a dejected newsstand the day after the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, to a series of celebrity profiles and moments of everyday life in New York – the exhibition showcases the city post-WWII and Kubrick’s talent as a creator.
The photography exhibition “Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs” is on view now until October, 2018.
