kubrik’s paper-bag camera

9 Dec

It’s Friday, a day on which I really only post fluff. Today’s topic: Stanley Kubrik’s photographic history.

Before he made 2001: A Space Odyssey or A Clockwork Orange, Stanley Kubrik was a photojournalist for Look magazine, “their youngest staff photographer on record,” writes Caroline Stanley. “Kubrick’s striking black and white images of 1940s New York City—which were often shot on the sly, his camera concealed in a paper bag with a hole in it—hint at the dark beauty and psychological drama of his later creative output.”

Kubrik's work is largely cinematic, writes Caroline Stanley
