Kubrick as Photographer

In 2010, some 300 photographs taken by a young Stanley Kubrick for “Look” magazine were presented for the first time ever in an exhibition held at the Palazzo della Ragione in Milan (see Worldwide 33670). The images on display came from the collections  of the Library of Congress and the Museum of the City of New York, which hold more than 20,000 negatives from Kubrick’s short career as a photographer. The show was curated by Rainer F. Crone who had previously covered this topic in his 2005 book Stanley Kubrick: Drama & Shadows — Photographs, 1945-1950 (Worldwide 117188), of which a revised edition will be released this summer (Worldwide 151418).
