Book + Exhibition / July 2018

Stanley Kubrick

Explore a formative phase in the career of one of the 20th century’s most renowned motion picture directors with an exhibition at Museum of the City of New York and the book publication Through a Different Lens. Stanley Kubrick Photographs out on Taschen.

Stanley Kubrick was just 17 when he sold his first photograph to the pictorial magazine Look in 1945. In his photographs, many unpublished, Kubrick trained the camera on his native city, drawing inspiration from the nightclubs, street scenes, and sporting events that made up his first assignments, and capturing the pathos of ordinary life with a sophistication that belied his young age.
