A new exhibition at The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium presents incredible photos of life in the 40s shot by young Stanley Kubrick, one of the leading filmmakers of the 20th century (Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining)
Shortly after graduating from high school in 1945, Stanley Kubrick worked for 5 years as photojournalist for the New York magazine Look. In fact hes was the youngest staff photographer in the magazine’s history. The sequential construction of his photojournalism – today in the collections of the Museum of the City of New York – already reflected Kubrick’s unique cinematography style. His lens captures a portrait of America right after World War II – a central theme in Kubrick’s films.
Stanley Kubrick‘s themes include crime scenes, the life of a shoeshine man, a university theatre troupe, etc. The Royal Museums invites visitors on a journey of discovery: the relation of American society to photography.
