Before he was a filmmaker, Stanley Kubrick was a photojournalist. In 1945, at 17, the boy from the Bronx sold his first photograph to Look magazine. He already had an eye. The photographs of these formative years—images snapped in New York City, on streets and in nightclubs, in TV-show studios and at social events—already contain Kubrickian themes. The exhibition looks at how this early work connects to the films that followed. —L.J.
