“Choosing the kind of lie you want to tell is actually the creative art of photography. And there are few better and more interesting liars than Anton.” - Brian Eno
Anton Corbijn has transformed his photo portrait subjects - from David Bowie to Nirvana and Nicolas Cage - into icons, capturing and enhancing their fame. One of the most important visual artists of the last century, Corbijn has had his works grace both the walls of art museums and the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
So what makes a master go from stills to the moving image? On the eve of the release of his directorial debut, Control - the story of Joy Division - Corbijn finds himself on the unfamiliar ground of the outer-circle of the Hollywood elite, risking everything to capture a new vision.
