NYFA Board member and award-winning actor Matthew Modine has opened a photography exhibit, Full Metal Diary, at Axiom Contemporary in Santa Monica.
Fresh from a record-breaking showing at the 23rd Annual LA Art Show, Modine’s works share an extraordinary, nuanced, and intimate view into life on the set of renowned director Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket.

Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, the film is known as a classic, and Modine’s photography offers a behind-the-scenes experience of artistic collaboration.
In black and white images captured in 1987, Modine’s Full Metal Diary shows the scale and also the intimacy of life on set, where he collaborated as a young actor with a true cinematic master for two years.
In fact, it was Kubrick himself who suggested that Modine keep a “diary” of his experiences portraying the iconic role of Private Joker. Now the public can enjoy Modine’s intimate access to the famously private director as well as his unique perspective on Full Metal Jacket.
