Photo Friday: Stanley Kubrick's New York - 1940s Photography

For most of us, when we hear the name Stanley Kubrick our minds go straight to movie titles, not iconic photography. When I hear Stanley Kubrick, I will forever think of A Clockwork Orange and those chilling suspender clad gangsters. However, I was pleased to find these photographs that Kubrick took in the 1940s in New York. Mostly because I love vintage photographs and movies since they're the closest thing to traveling back in time I'll ever get. The fact that they're the work of a director that I'm a fan of, just makes me more likely to love them. Which I do. Who knew Kubrick hung out with so many showgirls?

Anyway these kind of vintage photographs make me happy. Even though times were probably not easier, they at least seemed simpler, which is something I feel we might never get back. So enjoy these old black and whites of showgirls and circus performers!

Have a great weekend!


  1. These photographs are AMAZING!!! I'm an enormous fan of Kubrick, and these portray him in such a new (and way more whimsical) light!

    1. Haha glad you enjoyed them! I thought the same thing. I think I'm going to go watch a Clockwork Orange now.
