From Nov. 7th 2015 to Jan. 31st 2016 the C/O Berlin will be showing a retrospective of Anton Corbijn’s works.
To mark internationally renowned photographer and director Anton Corbijn’s sixtieth birthday, C/O Berlin is presenting a retrospective of his oeuvre encompassing around 600 photographs, with some films, and other materials. In this exhibition, C/O Berlin traces Corbijn’s evolution from self-taught novice to a celebrated and influential photographer and highlights the extraordinary diversity of his work in both subject matter and technique. The exhibition consists of two series: Hollands Deep which spans his entire oeuvre of 40 years – from his early b/w iconic photographs to his personal projects and conceptual series. 1-2-3-4 is a celebration of his work within the music world and many of these images are shown for the first time. This exhibition concentrates on photographs of bands and musicians he has photographed over a period of time and where his work became part of the visual history of these artists such as the Rolling Stones, U2, Nirvana, The Slits, Nick Cave, Siouxsie Sioux, Arcade Fire, Tom Waits, REM, Metallica, Johnny Rotten, Depeche Mode and Herbert Grönemeyer. Aside from that, there are many of what he calls „forgotten images“ of people like Isaac Hayes, the Bee Gees, David Bowie, Joe Cocker, Johnny Cash, Grace Jones and countless others shown here.
C/O Berlin will be the only venue for this exhibition in Germany. Catalogues have been published for each part of the retrospective: „Hollands Deep“ by Schirmer Mosel and „1-2-3-4“ by Prestel.
