Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn began his illustrious career in photography at a live concert in 1972. Moving to London, a few years later, he began shooting professionally for the UK’s New Musical Express. His first assignment was photographing bluesy Bill Haley, but he quickly became known for his work with post-punk bands like Joy Division and Public Image Ltd., bringing their subversive style statements to the attention of the masses with his cryptically imperfect images. Soon CORBIJN was attracting transatlantic commissions from Spin, Details, Vogue and Rolling Stone Magazine, also Die Zeit, Stern and L’Uomo Vogue. His subjects multiplied beyond the alternative to include everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Bjork, Luciano Pavarotti to Lance Armstrong, Nelson Mandela to Naomi Campbell, Miles Davis, Clint Eastwood, Courtney Love and Jon Bon Jovi. In addition to his photography, CORBIJN has directed over 70 highly acclaimed music videos for acts such as U2, Johnny Cash, Nirvana, Metallica and Nick Cave, a collection of which were released by Palm Pictures on DVD as part of the Director’s Label series. He has designed stages for three world tours as well as the on-stage visuals for Depeche Mode.
