The world cannot deny the artistry of Stanley Kubrick, both as an ace photographer and a brilliant filmmaker. One of his notable works, the 1971 film adaptation of Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange, is among the fourteen timeless movies that will be featured in this year’s roster of Cannes Classics.

The restored version of Kubrick’s controversial yet critically-acclaimed film is scheduled to be revealed on May 19th at the Cannes Film Festival, to mark the ’Clockwork’s’ 40th anniversary. Many fans and film enthusiasts will also rejoice once the 40th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray release hits the stores on the end of May.

Alex DeLarge and his band of fellow delinquents, Pete, Georgie, and Dim, will once again shock viewers in this satirical dark comedy—once infamous for the grisly Ludovico Technique—that kept people dead silent in the moviehouses four decades ago. However, according to ‘Clockwork’ star Malcolm McDowell, today’s generation of filmgoers now take the movie “as they (cast and crew) meant it”—a very black comedy that is “more psychological than ketchup on the screen.”

Open your eyes wide and watch the Blu-ray edition trailer below:

    A Salute to the Masters: Swing Festival in Como (A Tribute to Alexey Brodovitch)

    This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

  • Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
