Corbijn Anton - 1993

Kurt Cobain, Seattle

Anton Corbijn, born 1955, Strijen (NL), lived and worked in London for thirty years. He is best known for his black and white photographs of actors, musicians, and artists, though he cannot be seen as a celebrity photographer – rather as someone who captures personalities that intrigue him. Some of his photographs have become iconic images of modern pop culture. Besides his photographic oeuvre, Corbijn also designed stages, directed music videos, and directs feature films these days. In 2007 he made his film debut with ‘Control’, about the life of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis. In 2014 his film ‘A Most Wanted Man’ was released and in 2015 his film ‘Life’ – about the friendship between actor James Dean and photographer Dennis Stock – had its premiere.​

The artist had major solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Bucerius Kunst Forum in Hamburg, Fotografiska in Stockholm, FOMU in Antwerp, Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, S.M.A.K. in Ghent, Kestner Gesellschaft in Hannover, Groninger Museum in Groningen, Münchner Stadtmuseum in Munich, Museum Morsbroich in Leverkusen, Museum Moderne Kunst in Dresden, Foam in Amsterdam, Museum Bochum, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Palazzo Fortuny in Venice, Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Bologna, Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, amongst many others.​
