“Before he started making movies, Stanley Kubrick was a star photojournalist. In the summer of 1949, Look magazine sent him to Chicago to shoot pictures for a story called “Chicago City of Contrasts.”
-Chicago Tribune

Looking through a gallery of Stanley Kubrick‘s photography culled from the Library of Congress by the blog How To Be A Retronaut, we can’t help but marvel at how all the classically Kubrickian elements are already in place in his young work: perspective, beauty, brutality and the timeless, cold stare of humanity.
