Kubrick the photojournalist

STANLEY KUBRICK is famous as a director of some of Hollywood’s more memorable and controversial films.

Among them: 2001: A Space Odyssey. A Clockwork Orange. Dr. Strangelove. Eyes Wide Shut. The Shining. Full Metal Jacket. Spartacus.

And one of my favorites: Paths of Glory.

But what many don’t know is that Kubrick was an accomplished photojournalist. In the summer of 1949, Look magazine sent him to Chicago for a photo shoot. Here are some of Kubrick’s photos from that assignment.
