For more than three decades Anton Corbijn has photographed the greatest artists in the music world and beyond. That made him one of the most influential portrait photographers of our days. In Corbijn’s career, however, there has been one constant: the band U2, and their collaboration of 22 years. His most recent publication—number seven in the line of Corbijn books published by Schirmer/Mosel—is dedicated to Bono, Edge, Larry, and Adam, to their longstanding friendship, mutual inspiration, and shared experience of rock history that is part of the history of photography. It was Anton Corbijn who "invented" U2’s public image and he is still shaping it. The long way from their first encounter in February 1982 in New Orleans to their April 2004 Lisbon shooting for the most recent U2 album is documented in a wealth of private and so-called official pictures with hand-written annotations by the photographer.
Anton Corbijn, born in Strijen, Holland, in 1955, photographer, filmmaker and designer, started his career in the 70s with portraits of David Bowie, Lou Reed, Miles Davis, and Peter Gabriel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME It's true - a picture really does say a thousand words! Most impressed with the visual unfolding, or maturation of my FAVOURITE Rock-n-Roll band from its youth in 1982, up to 2004 when they have arrived internationally as the BEST. A real treat after having just seen them up, up close in concert, in November. I am still Stuck In that Moment !! And, as if the photos were not enough, they are complete with photographer comments (albeit difficult to decipher the handwriting in places :-)). I especially enjoyed the spontaneous photos that are not intentional poses - depicts their genuine dedication to the music and spituality, working tirelessly to make the world a better place. Thank you! LOVE n PEACE.
