Il desiderio di esplorare l’umanità nelle sue viscere.

di Redazione Art Vibes


Prima di diventare un celebre regista, autore di capolavori cinematografici come “2001 Odissea nello spazio“, “Arancia meccanica” e “Shining“, Stanley Kubrick aveva lavorato come fotografo per Look Magazine quando aveva solo 17 anni.
Dotato di un gusto estetico particolare e un’attenzione minuziosa alla narrazione visiva, ha impreziosito con le sue immagini una gran quantità di articoli nel periodo tra il 1945 e il 1950.
Tra i tanti reportage fotografici pubblicati, oggi il “Museum of the city of New York“, ha portato alla luce una serie di scatti sorprendenti che ritraggono passeggeri all’interno della metropolitana di New York, alle prese con i loro spostamenti quotidiani.
Kubrick ha catturato una serie affascinante che rivela la moda, lo stile e i comportamenti dei newyorkesi nel primo dopoguerra. Tra momenti intimi rubati e istantanee soggettive, il desiderio di questo genio creativo di esplorare l’umanità nelle sue viscere si stava già formando.
