Even more proof that the moon landing was a hoax.

He also worked for Look magazine in the 1950s, when he was in his early 20s, as a photo essayist.

Anyone who has any interest in Kubrick knows that he started out as a still photographer; it's why he was more interested in cameras than any modern director and why he hired guys like Weegee as the on-set photographers for his films.

/and if you don't know who Weegee is, you need to look him up.

Don't understand what Malleo's Brother has to do with Kubrik, but ok.

And he made the trains pull into the station twenty times before he got the shot he wanted.

It's amazing how people were able to navigate through those stations with just incandescent bulbs lighting the way...

and everyone except the most common of laborers wore a suit and tie for the men and a dress[plus coat if the temps even barely allowed it] for the women along with accessories like a hat and jewelry.

Taking photos of a subway? Clearly, Kubrick was a terrorist.

I was born in the wrong century. I suit and hat it up when ever possible.
I'm sure I get labeled as a hipster but I promise I'm not wearing the clothes ironically and I would never wear a dime store fedora with a $60 dollar t-shirt.
Matter of fact post my 30th birthday (many years ago) I don't wear t-shirts in public anymore, only as undershirts or if I'm out doing something sporting (baskball, disc golf, camping). A collar and a few buttons go a long way.

Odd, in my late thirties, I realized actually putting thought into dressing is kind of a waste of time.   So, I bought about 20 black t-shirts.  All the same.  I have about 10 pairs of jeans, and that's what I wear, pretty much without fail.  For winter, I have black long sleeved shirts.  Pretty much all the same style and fit as well.  It really makes getting out of the house a lot easier.  Going somewhere fancy?  Sport coat over the t-shirt, and a decent pair of shoes.  I realize that some people may look down on me for my normal appearance, but at this age, I pretty much don't give a fark.  I do also have a nice selection of pretty expensive, and well fitted suits from my days of working in  an industry that I had to suit and tie it every day.  Those only really come out now for wedding and funerals.

Hahaha
A few collars and several buttons go even further (like to 11)!

/I'm a fairly big guy 6' 220, I can't even begin to imaging how uncomfortable wearing 4 polo shirts is.

Don't get me wrong, I don't wear a suit and a bowler to the movies or anything.
I'm a lot like you but I only have 3 pair of jeans and instead of 20 black t-shirts I have an assortment of oxford and oxford-ish shirts. That all go well with a sport coat. It's just as easy, and I don't spend a lot of money on my wardrobe, well except a few pairs of  classic allen edmonds shoes that last me years.
I don't care for brand names and I never buy clothes with a visible name if possible.
Also I don't look down on people for their clothing choices, to each their own.

Good thing he quit his day job.

You see kids, back in my day, we didn't have no "iTunes", if you wanted music, you bought it on paper, at a newsstand, and made it yourself!

The guy on the left did bad things to Kubrick just moments after the picture was taken.
