In what seems a natural progression to him becoming one of the most revered filmmakers in history, Stanley Kubrick worked as a photographer. This series is one he shot for LOOK magazine over a two-week period in 1946. These shots of the New York City subway are intimate to the point of feeling voyeuristic, giving viewers glimpses of loving couples, families and commuters of both sexes and all types. The photographs were just a sample of the 15,000 he shot during 129 assignments for the magazine.
