17 Year Old Stanley Kubrick: Life in New York

The Museum of the City of New York has presented a new reading of the work of one of the 20th century’s great masters of storytelling by displaying, for the first time, a photographic archive of more than 120 stills shot by Kubrick for the general interest magazine Look from 1945 – when he was a 17-year-old high-school graduate from the Bronx – to 1950.

 The commissioned stories range from profiles of celebrities such as Montgomery Clift to photo essays on urban life, such as A Day in the Life of a Shoeshine Boy.

 A new book published by Taschen accompanies the exhibition, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of Kubrick’s cult science-fiction film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
