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 anillustrious decades-long career that has most recently involvedthe 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 toCorbijn's obsession with rock and roll--an interest that has ledto 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 Corbijnwas able to capture largely as a result of his close relationshipswith his subjects.
Nearly every revered musician and band isrepresented in Corbijn's archives: Nick Cave to Nirvana, U2 toR.E.M., the Rolling Stones to Siouxie and the Banshees.
Manyof the portraits are accompanied by their subjects' own takeon Corbijn's distinct style and approach.

A fitting tribute to an innovative and deeplypassionate photographer, this book will rock fans of music andphotography.
