NEW YORK, N.Y.- VandM.com
introduces an exclusive sale of photographs by the late director Stanley Kubrick. These 25 dramatic black and white limited-edition images, available to the public for the first time, represent the iconic directors first job as staff photographer for LOOK Magazine from 1945 to 1950.
Stanley Kubricks New York has been made available to the public through an exclusive partnership with the Museum of the City of New York, which archived the negatives. VandM will offer these fine art prints in limited editions of 50 with a numbered certificate of authenticity signed by the museums Curator of Prints and Photography. They will be priced from approximately $400 to $2,500 per photo.
The sale will last until the end of December.
The collection offers a glimpse into post-war New York City and subjects range from a reflection of Kubrick photographing showgirl Rosemary Williams to Broadway performer Betsy Von Furstenberg, Boxer Rocky Graziano, Dwight Eisenhower as President at Columbia University, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus vignettes and other classic black and white shots of quirky New Yorkers.
Renowned for such films as Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange and Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick began his career as a free-lance photographer for LOOK magazine. After taking a picture of a newsvendor reacting to the death of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Kubrick took this photo to the magazine and sold it for 25 dollars. A few months later, LOOK hired him as a photo reporter: at 17, he was the youngest photographer on the magazine's staff. Kubrick worked for LOOK from 1945 to 1950 when he left to pursue film making.
