Long before Stanley Kubrick cemented his reputation as an iconic yet enigmatic filmmaker, he joined Look magazine as a staff photographer at the age of 17. It was while on assignment for Look that Kubrick had his first glimpse behind-the-scenes of a film shoot when he took photos on the set of Jules Dassin’s The Naked City (1948) for an unpublished feature. Inspired by the Museum of the City of New York’s exhibition, “Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs,” take a fresh look at this breathtakingly vivid film noir, which stirred Kubrick’s nascent fascination with film.
