Redesign of the photo “Spectators of boxing matches in Chicago”

The boxing theme in Kubrick’s work can be seen in one of his first feature films, “The Killer’s Kiss”, as well as in his first film, the short film “Battle Day”. It is possible that the idea to make these films came to him when he was photographing for LOOK magazine.
