Photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn’s work is as iconic as the subjects he shoots. As the preeminent music photographer of the seventies and eighties, Corbijn’s candid images are as seminally prophetic about the direction of music as the songs of Bono and Bowie.
After decades spent on tour, shooting bands, he expanded his portraiture to include other cultural players: writers, models, actors, and artists.
Unseen outtakes from his whirlwind career are available for viewing, many for the first time, in an exhibition in Antwerp titled New Squares. The humble title is a nod to Corbijn’s signature style—raw, unpretentious, and real.
New Squares runs through July 5 at Zeno X Gallery, Godtsstraat 15, 2140 Antwerp Borgerhout.
