See NYC Through the Eyes of 17-Year-Old Stanley Kubrick

Stanley Kubrick is one of the most influential directors in cinematic history. His mastery of the lens was apparent as early as 17 years old, as you can see in these candid photos of NYC.

From “2001: Space Odyssey” to “The Shining,” Stanley Kubrick’s legacy in cinema is assured. Kubrick is widely regarded as one of the most influential directors in cinema. But, before he was a cinematic trailblazer he was just like you me; a simple New Yorker trying to make his way in the world.

When he was a teenager, Kubrick worked at Look Magazine where he developed an eye for what worked on camera. You can certainly see the genesis of Kubrick’s signature composition and framing in these shots. What is remarkable is that these photos came from the hands of a 17-year-old. Be in no doubt that Kubrick was a genius, and enjoy NYC Through the Eyes of 17-Year-Old Stanley Kubrick:
