Arthur Fellig, aka Weegee, collaborated with Stanley Kubrick when the two were both struggling photographers in the city. Weegee's work from his time behind the lens is being celebrated this year, but where's the love for Kubrick's photos? Back in the 1940s he was a staff photographer for LOOK Magazine, and yesterday the Museum of the City of New York Tweeted a link to photos of Kubrick's photographs capturing New York City’s subway commuters.
They note, "Kubrick was not the first photographer to depict the New York City subway. In 1938 Walker Evans shot many amazing portraits of unknowing riders with a camera hidden in his coat. This may have influenced Kubrick’s work."
The museum has over 8,000 photos from Kubrick in their archives—click through for a preview, including those from his subway shoots, and that time a monkey pushed a dog around in a baby carriage at a UN party.
