NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The acclaimed director of 'A Clockwork Orange,' 'The Shining,' and 'Full Metal Jacket' is the subject of a new exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York.

Stanley Kubrick was still in high school in the Bronx when he went to work as a photographer for Look magazine.

"And that's what's really fun because you feel like you're out on the streets with him, seeing New York through his eyes," museum director Whitney Donhauser said.

Donhauser took 1010 WINS' Juliet Papa through the exhibit that includes photos of a shoe shine boy, people on the subway, and the circus coming to town.

"Riding on a high-wire on a bicycle with these women hanging and then of course the guy who's the announcer with his tie sort of flying in the air, you really capture the immediacy of the moment and you feel like you're right there," she said.

Donhauser said the display also reveals Kubrick's evolution from still photos to moving pictures.
