View 1940s Chicago Through Stanley Kubrick's Lens

New, 3 comments

Before filmmaker Stanley Kubrick directed and produced classics like Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange and The Shining, he was a street photographer and photojournalist. In the late-'40s Kubrick shot for a publication called Look magazine, who sent him to Chicago to shoot the Windy City for a story. Mashable has recently reminded us of the incredible black and white images of the city and its people that Kubrick produced in 1949, which the Library of Congress has since preserved and digitized for its online archives.
