Watching the obligatory New Year's Day "Rage" on ABC, I saw a promo for "Shadow Play" about legendary photographer Anton Corbjin, airing on Monday 3rd January on ABC 1. A an absolutely luminary photographer, film maker, and DOP, thought I'd add a post to show some off his black and white photographic work, and usher in 2011 with some inspiration.

(From Wikipedia) Anton Corbijn (Dutch pronunciation: [kɔrˈbɛin]; born 20 May 1955) is a Dutch photographer, music video and film director. He is the creative director behind the visual output of Depeche Mode and U2,[2][3] having handled the principal promotion and sleeve photography for both for more than a decade. Some of his works include music videos for Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence" (1990) and Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" (1993), as well as the Ian Curtis biopic Control.[4]
