The Kid's Got Talent

Before Stanley Kubrick became the epitome of true artistic talent existing in the film industry he was a young Bronx kid with a camera. Look, a popular general interest magazine of the time sent a young Kubrick to Chicago on assignment in the summer of 1949. Here is a collection of his photographs. You can see how his use of contrast had a big influence on his early films like Killer's Kiss and The Killing.

Never got around to watching Killer's Kiss but watched The Killing and, as you pointed out, you can see how his photography influenced that movie.

Didn't know that about him by the way. Learn something new huh?

Could see how carrying around a camera could be a huge creative injection for a film maker. Ever do it yourself? In fact, probably be a great thing for a writer to do to huh. Stories galore.

There's a great documentary that comes with the Kubrick box set called, A Life In Pictures. It goes into his unpbringing and early days of photography. Excellent. Worth checking out.
