Vivian Kubrick’s Photos Captured on the Sets of Stanley Kubrick’s Films


Vivian Kubrick, daughter of legendary director Stanley Kubrick, collaborated with her father on a number of his films. As a teen she directed a documentary for the BBC, The Making of The Shining. She captured footage during the shooting of Full Metal Jacket, intending to create another doc, but wound up scoring the movie instead (under the pseudonym Abigail Mead). She also made appearances in several films, including Barry Lyndon and 2001: A Space Odyssey. It seems clear that father and daughter shared a deep creative bond. Vivian recently took to Twitter to share a wonderful series of photos that she captured while hanging out on the set of her father’s famous films. It’s like seeing Kubrick’s movies with a new pair of eyes. The rare images include Vivian lounging in the Korova Milk Bar from A Clockwork Orange, playing with a baby chimp during the making of 2001, and more. An incredibly touching photo of father and daughter together reveals the special relationship they shared. See more in our gallery.
