Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

Stanley Kubrick Still Photographer

The Washington Post recently highlighted an upcoming exhibit of Stanley Kubrick's still photography: “Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs" May 3 at the Museum of the City of New York

I wish I could make a visit as the preview looks interesting.
Basically, I mean, ah—well, let’s say that for me anyway when a photograph is interesting, it’s interesting because of the kind of photographic problem it states—which has to do with the . . . contest between content and form.

At some stage at least (here very young) he used Leica too. And if you search you can find pictures of him using several different cameras (just like us I guess).

He was a (very young) staff photographer for Look Magazine.
