The Complete STANLEY KUBRICK Exhibit at LACMA – Skiffleboom.com » Kubrick the Photographer: The Graflex Pacemaker Speed Graphic Camera

Produced by Graflex in Rochester, New York, the Speed Graphic is considered the most famous press camera. The first Speed Graphic cameras were produced in 1912, and production of later versions continued until 1973. The camera was standard equipment for many American press photographers until the mid-1960s and was used by Kubrick during his tenure as a staff photographer for “Look” magazine.

Perhaps the most famous Speed Graphic user was the New York press photographer Arthur “Weegee” Fellig, whose work was greatly admired by Kubrick.
