Stanley Kubrick, the Photographer

Stanley Kubrick at Look Magazine

Before becoming an iconic director, Stanley Kubrick was a staff photographer at Look magazine. His special skill behind the camera and ability to create visual intrigue were evident long before his arrival in Hollywood. Even at the age of 17, he was an immense talent. In 1945, for $25, he sold a photograph to Look of a broken-hearted newsvendor reacting to the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. A few months later he joined Look’s staff to become the youngest staff photographer in the magazine’s history. He continued to work for the magazine until 1950 when he left to pursue filmmaking.

It was during this period that Kubrick’s respected—and often-imitated—style first became apparent. His photographs are vintage Kubrick: a complex blend of composition, drama, light and mystery.
