Stanley Kubrick

Before The Killing, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, or even The Shining, Stanley Kubrick was a young artist with a passion for images. While he hadn’t made some of the greatest films of all-time yet, it seems like the director had a keen eye for people and places around him.

Dangerous Minds posted a series of photographs on Thursday that were taken by the future director during the summer of 1946 in the New York City subway for LOOK magazine, a competitor to LIFE. According to the site, Kubrick was just 16 years old, thus would begin a relationship with the magazine that would last several years, until he began making movies in earnest around the age of 23, in the early 1950s.

The photographs feature a self portrait of the filmmaker followed by shots of the people moving through the subway and interacting with each other including a couple standing intimately with a man laying on the ground behind them and passengers sleeping on the cars.
