"Most of us know Stanley Kubrick as the legendary director of some of cinemas most significant, landmark films.When we see his name, we think of 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb or The Shining.
What most of us probably dont know is that he started his creative endeavors as a still photographer. Even more surprising, he started down that path as a precocious 17-year-old who eventually landed a job as a staff photographer for Look magazine, the storied pictorial competitor to Henry Luces Life.
A new exhibit opening May 3 at the Museum of the City of New York titled Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs, brings together more than 120 photos taken by Kubrick during that time. Cumulatively, this exhibit provides us with a glimpse of the creative force the young Kubrick was and the one that he would eventually become."
