Stanley Kubrick at LACMA: The Final Day

On 01, Jul 2013 | No Comments | In Photography | By vashi

After an amazing 6 month run…The Stanley Kubrick Exhibit at LACMA has closed. The most comprehensive collection of Kubrick’s equipment, scripts, props, documents, photos and more has been situated 10 miles from my home and I haven’t made time to go. I’ve planned to go…wanted to go…needed to go and finally on the last day…I went.

It was an overwhelming experience and I wish I had gone several more times to delve deeper into this historical filmmaking treasure trove. Here are some of the photos I took during my 4-hour journey into the World Of Stanley Kubrick.
