If someone said the phrase "rock photographer," we are talking about Anton Corbijn. All the rest – do not count. For anyone who grew up on Depeche Mode and U2, to anyone who has heard the Joy Division name of the photographer – more than just a name. Kobreyn appeared born in the Netherlands, and after some time after the event went on their first gig as a photographer. Then he took off his camera, which he took from his father. In 1924 Anton moved to London and devoted himself British shooting groups.
Around this time he made his debut as a director of video clips. He created music videos for groups Nirvana, Metallica, The Killers, Coldplay. Probably the most clips he made for Depeche Mode. He made so many pictures of rock stars, it is hardly someone will soon be close to the results. Among other things, he shot the cult film "Control", half-biographical story about the life of Ian Curtis – the leader of Joy Divison. If you have read about Jack Fusco already – you may have come to the same conclusion.
