A bunch of pictures Stanley Kubrick took in New York in the 1940’s…

I love Stanley Kubrick. I am a huge fan of his movies and admire him for the unrelenting research he put into every piece of film he shot. He also liked taking photographs. He personally shot hundreds of thousands of photos of places while researching for movies as well as did some personal artistic photography as well. I have heard he has hundreds of storage boxes filled with photographs and film from his pre-shoot research. Apparently he would send dozens of people all around cities or areas he wished to shoot at to take pictures of every building from every angle possible. He would personally go through each negative to get a better sense of the area for his films.

Here are some of his photo’s he shot in New York City sometime in the 1940’s. They are magnificent!
