In the eighties photographer Anton Corbijn, known for his portraits of musicians, developed an interest in painters. The South African painter Marlene Dumas was portraited by Corbijn in her studio in 2000, the year that she has a large exhibition at SMAK in Gent (BE). 

In recent years Anton Corbijn (b. 1955) is mostly known as director of movies like Control (2007) and The American (2010). Next to directing movies, his love for photography remains strong. During his thirty-year career he worked together with numerous musicians and actors and became the ‘personal photographer’ of bands like U2 and Depeche Mode. Corbijn also directed many music videos for Joy Division, Nirvana, Coldplay and Johnny Cash.

His photographs have been exhibited worldwide in leading galleries and museums including the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg , the Photography Research Centre in Boston and the Museum of Art in Vienna. Several monographic books concerning the photographical work of Corbijn have been published.

During his long lasting career the work of Corbijn forms a major influence on international music and portrait photography. The creative, off-beat way he has photographed performing artists since the 1970s has become his personal trademark. The atmospheric and often melancholic black-and-white aesthetic from his early years contains a subtle balance between documentary- and portrait photography. Implicitly questioning the boundaries between different photographical genres became characteristic for Corbijns work and had a big influence on photography as a whole.

This photo print has a small white border around all sides. For a framer this border is necessary to be able to frame it properly. The print will be carefully wrapped and send as an insured package.
