Book of the week is 1-2-3-4 By Anton Corbijn
Representing the ultimate publication on the music photography of Anton Corbijn, one of the most important photographers and directors working today, this collection of images, many never before published, focuses on Corbijn’s evolving fascination with the music industry, from the 1970s to the present day. Anton Corbijn’s interest in music has been the engine of an
illustrious decades-long career that has most recently involved
the making of feature length films such as The American,
A Most Wanted Man, and Life, due to be released in 2015.
This gloriously illustrated, oversized book pays homage to
Corbijn’s obsession with rock and roll–an interest that has led
to lifelong friendships with Bono, Michael Stipe, Dave Gahan,
and other iconic musicians. Looking back over four decades,
it features hundreds of creative, offbeat images that Corbijn
was able to capture largely as a result of his close relationships
with his subjects. Nearly every revered musician and band is
represented in Corbijn’s archives: Nick Cave to Nirvana, U2 to
R.E.M., the Rolling Stones to Siouxie and the Banshees. Many
of the portraits are accompanied by their subjects’ own take
on Corbijn’s distinct style and approach. Also included here
are previously unpublished photos of the late Joe Cocker
and the band Depeche Mode, who consider him an honorary
member. A fitting tribute to an innovative and deeply
passionate photographer, this book will rock fans of music and
