Most researchers dream of discovering never before published documents or images. For Rainer Crone, http://www.rainercrone.com/, an art history professor teaching in Munich, the dream became reality.
For over ten years, the professor dug through archives at Washington’s Library of Congress and the New York City Museum searching for photographs taken by Kubrick for the American magazine Look. The film director was 20 years old at the time, and liked to tell stories through pictures such as in the photo-story dating from 1947 about Mickey, the shoe-shine boy.
It was Look magazine’s editorial characteristic to follow cover all aspects of their subjects, following them during their daily activities. It was also the principal photojournalistic style of that time period.
Stanley Kubrick’s photos evoke the ambiance of the filming of Federico Fellini’s La Strada (1954) seen at Paris’ Jeu de Paume in October 2009.
