Chicago by Stanley Kubrick

I found these beautiful pictures in an article on Mashable.
It was 1949, Mr. Kubrick was 21 years old and he was working as a journalistic photographer for Look Magazine. In this wide variety of subjects, (school children, steel workers, models, commuters, etc), I can see an exciting post-war Chicago characterised by striking contradictions, a renewed freedom and big hopes for the future.
I particularly like the first six and the portrait of the African-American family. I think, we can all agree that the kid already had talent 😛
