Anton Corbijn's Portraits at Foam

The Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn (1955) has become famous for his big expressive black and white portraits of film stars and pop artists (e.g. Clint Eastwood, Robert de Niro, Depeche Mode, U2, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Björk). His movies and music videos are also very well-known. Currently his work focuses on portraits of other types of artists that he admires. He has added portraits of a.o. Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter and Damien Hirst to his collection.

Anton Corbijn's camera of choice is still an analogue Hasselblad. He uses lenses with a focal length of 60, 80 and 120mm.

Anton Corbijn's beautiful portraits can currently be seen at the exhibition Anton Corbijn - inwards and onwards at Foam in Amsterdam (till September 1).
