There are several reasons why people stop by at the on-going Stanley Kubrick exhibition at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, California: some are avid film fans hoping to learn more about the oeuvre and personal life of the iconic filmmaker while some are artists and photographers hoping to see the very physical materials (from equipment to scripts) Kubrick has laid his hands on.
Perhaps two of the most fascinating items that can be found here are the famed NASA Zeiss f/0.7 lens and the custom-modified Mitchell 35mm cinema camera; the two items Kubrick used in filming. These equipment are mostly known to be responsible for the natural light-shot candle-lit scene in Kubrick’s “Barry Lyndon (1975)”.
