RIDING THE SUBWAY WITH STANLEY KUBRICK

by this point it’s not much of a secret that a young Stanley Kubrick earned his chops as a photographer for LOOK Magazine and some other rags in 1940s new york city, but relatively unseen examples of his work continue to crop up here and there. given that i live in NYC, i’d say mostly “here.” 

Museum of the City of New York has just posted a collection of delightfully candid photos Kubrick snapped on the city’s subways, and together they’re something of a remarkable portal. it might be a bit of a stretch to say that these portraits portend Kubrick’s unique precision as a director of motion pictures, but they’re focused and bracing and — if you squint hard enough — you can even see some Fear and Desire, in there.
