Stanley Kubrick's New York

Stanley Kubrick (July 26, 1928 - March 7, 1999) is regarded of one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. In the beginning though, he was more interested in still photography, rather then the moving pictures. When he was thirteen his father bought him a Graflex camera, and so it begun...

During the 40s he captured everyday life in New York. So let's travel back in time and look at The Big Apple through the lens of Stanley!
