Stanley Kubrick’s Fashion Photography

Before he became a producer of such iconic films as Dr. Strangelove and 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick was a freelance photographer.  His early work included fashion photography. 

Kubrick was still in high school in Manhattan when he sold his first series of fashion photographs to LOOK magazine.  He continued to work for LOOK during his twenties and up until the time he made the switch into film.
