Stanley Kubrick's photo reports for 'Look' magazine
On 7 May 2014, Bank Austria Kunstforum Vienna will open the exhibition 'Eyes Wide Open' of photos by director Stanley Kubrick who worked from 1945 to 1950 as photojournalist for 'Look' magazine before he made cult movies like 'Dr. Strangelove', 'Clockwork Orange' or 'Eyes Wide Shut' to name only three from a long list of films which influence views on culture products like architecture. In 1951, Kubrick made his first documentary film 'Day of the Fight' showing Irish-American boxer Walter Cartier in the style of the reports he did for 'Look' magazine (on the photo on this page Rocky Graziano); more than fifteen of these reports will be shown at the exhibition. For the opening of 'Eyes Wide Open', 'tout Vienne' from the city's celebrity surgeon to one of Austria's Oscar winners have already responded to the invitation and promised their appearance.
Fashionoffice won't report from that evening as it confirmed it's attendance already at the VIP-football-lifestyle challenge for 'The Eat the Ball Football European Championship 2014' on 7 May (BTW: the registration for the VIP football event is open until today, 5th May); but Fashionoffice will visit the exhibition of Stanley Kubrick's reports for some inspirations.
