Anton Corbijn Collects Tom Waits Portraits in New Coffee Table Book
Published Aug 12, 2009Iconic photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn has been involved with some pretty big names throughout his career, including the likes of U2, Depeche Mode, Nirvana and Joy Division. Whether he's worked as a photographer (as on the Joshua Tree album cover), a video director (Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus") or film auteur (the Joy Division biopic Control), Corbijn has always brought a unique vision to his subject matter.
Now, Corbijn's work with swampy blues personality Tom Waits will be collected in a new photography book. Simply titled Waits/Corbijn, the book showcases a stunning collection of Waits portraits that Corbijn has photographed in their 30 years of working together.
The book is 160 pages, including 75 colour and duotone plates, and will also include Tom Waits lyrics interspersed between photos.
Waits/Corbijn is due out on October 26 from publisher Schirmer/Mosel.
