Yep, we have Kubrick again for this installment of Overly Descriptive Titles! There’s no doubt that Stanley Kubrick remains one of the most influential film directors of all time, but perhaps not many know that he was also an ace photographer. That’s right! If his badass self-portrait above does not appear convincing enough for you (even if it’s one of his most famous photos), we bet his interesting monochrome snaps of 1949 Chicago will!
