In 1949, Stanley Kubrick was a photographer for Look Magazine when he came to Chicago to work on a story with Irv Kupcinet. He shot 40 rolls, but only 11 pictures ended up in the story. The film was donated to the Library of Congress, and only recently documented and catalogued; the Tribune has a story about Kubrick's visit and a gallery of eight of the unpublished photos. For more, go to the LoC's online photography catalogue.
