Stanley Kubrick, Show Girl, photo for Look Magazine

At age 17 before his filmmaking career, Kubrick was the youngest photographer for Look Magazine. As always, he had the eye for framing his shots.

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Great frame with great composition. I have not seen the film, but I guess from this one shot of Rosemary looking at the other woman’s cards that she can be at the least, very opportunistic.

    So much for Rosemary, back to Kubrick. Seventy five years ago, Life and Look weekly magazines brought us visual information in the era before television. Life had the best photographers and Look was second. Large format, large, great photographs. Thank you for telling me of his genius being evident at such an early age.

    One bubble burst, but I still stand by my analysis (so obvious) of Rosemary.
