Are you a cinephile, a lover of dynamic photography or an amateur photographer in a rut and looking for an inspirational story to help you move forward? Well you are in for a treat!
I am sure many of you have heard of Stanley Kubrick’s classic Dr. Strangelove and other popular Kubrick flicks such as, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Clockwork Orange, but what you may not know is that the mastermind behind these films started off as an amateur photographer. Yes, just like some of you! If that’s not cool enough, he became the youngest staff photographer for LOOK Magazine in 1945 at the ripe age of 17 and only 5 years later, left to pursue filmmaking.
VandM.com, the leading online source for unique vintage furniture, antiques, art, photography, and jewelry from around the world, thought it was about time to give the guy some credit for his amazing work. So they are proud to present The Stanley Kubrick Collection, a 25 piece collection of dramatic black and white limited-edition images from the late director. They will be sold exclusively on VandM.
The photos are all printed on museum quality acid-free fibre paper and come with a certificate of authenticity for the paranoid in all of us.
The collection gives us an exclusive peak into post-war New York City. The subjects range showgirl Rosemary Williams to Broadway performer Betsy Von Furstenberg, Boxer Rocky Graziano, Dwight Eisenhower as President at Columbia University, Ringling Bros. and playful pieces such as Barnum & Bailey Circus vignettes and other classic black and white shots of eccentric New Yorkers. They will be priced from approximately $400 to $800 per photo.
