When Stanley Kubrick first sold a photograph, at the age of 17, he had already begun telling stories through pictures.
Without any formal education in film-making, he taught himself to make films through photography and by spending many hours in his local cinema.
At 21 he financed and created his own short film, "Day of the Fight", thus beginning a controversial cinema career that has incorporated films such as "Dr Strangelove", "A Clockwork Orange" and "2001: A Space Odyssey".
This detailed biography of Kubrick includes interviews with people who knew him during his formative years, as well as accounts by professional colleagues.
