This updated edition of the ultimate publication on the music photography of Anton Corbijn, one of the most importantphotographers and directors working today, focuses on Corbijn's evolving fascination with the music industry, from the 1970s to the present day. 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. 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 three 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 Also included here are previously unpublished photos of the band Depeche Mode, who considered him an honorary member. A fitting tribute to an innovative and deeply passionate photographer, this book will rock fans of music and photography.

Few photographers live up to the term "image-maker" as completely as Anton Corbijn. His photographs, as well-known as the rock stars he has been shooting for the past twenty years, often reveal truths that surprise even his subjects -- uncovering hidden aspects of their personalities, and imprinting them into our collective memory. His artistry has shaped, if not transformed, the image of numerous rock performers. His legendary portrait of the group Joy Division in a subway station, or his unforgettable depiction of David Bowie clad only in a loincloth, for example, are as instantly recognizable as the Mona Lisa. In 33 Still Lives, his fourth book, Anton Corbijn has created a new series of pictures featuring international stars from the world of the movies and music, ranging from Bjork, Bono, and Marianne Faithful to Clint Eastwood and Robert de Niro. In this innovative and daring collection he stages 33 "film stills" of imaginary movies -- single-picture stories disguised as cinema verite photographs which Corbijn refers to as "fake documentaries". The connection between these images remains mysterious and enigmatic, yet they draw the viewer into an imaginary world whose mesmerizing pull is hard to resist. In his introductory essay, art and media theorist Ulf Poschardt points out the singular position Corbijn's work occupies in a world of mechanically manufactured images: "Photography for Anton Corbijn has always been a search for fissures in the cocoon of make-believe". 33 Still Lives is both an adventurous expression of Corbijn's synergetic vision, and a profoundly beautiful collection of portraits of personalities we think we know, but never really can.
