TASCHEN 'ROLLING STONES’ book

there will be a special edition of the rolling stones book that Taschen Publications will release in december. it is an amazing book also without the edition print of this image by ANTON. and probably a lot cheaper too but it is a great idea to combine print and print. check it out here

LIFE

This photograph is our first publicity shot from the film LIFE that i am currently shooting in Canada and USA. It is the story of James Dean and photographer Dennis Stock, set in early 1955. In the back of the car sits Jimmy as played by Dane DeHaan and in the passenger seat is Dennis, played by Robert Pattinson. Both guys are fantastic and are giving the film very good energy despite the very harsh winter we encountered in Canada.

JJ Cale

it was sad to hear about the passing of JJ Cale. i loved his music and played "REALLY" and 'NATURALLY" constantly in the 70's.

i visited him at home in the 90's (a cropped photograph of mine was the cover of his "Guitar Man" record in 1996) and he was just a great and humble man.

photography is still a great way to meet people and can carry memories that are partly shared and partly private.

Depeche Mode - Delta Machine

this is the new cd/vinyl cover for DEPECHE MODE. the background photograph i shot in new york and the cover + logo i designed in hamburg, during the filming of A MOST WANTED MAN.

i wanted the cover to reflect something raw, industrial, independent, and have a graphic vibe to it. this is the 10th album i worked on for DM and the 8th album front-cover that i designed for them, including the BEST OF record.

there will be a special edition cd that has a 28 page booklet which contains many pages of photographs from shoots we did in new york and louisiana.

the record will be released late march 2013.

Waits / corbijn '77-'11

after years on and off of putting a book together, on may 8th a large book simply titled WAITS / CORBIJN '77-'11 will see the light of day.

this book contains photographs of tom waits by myself, with, and this is really very special and a first, 50 pages of tom's images and words. it is published in a numbered limited edition of 6600 books. it spans photographs taken over a 35 year period. we didn't see each other every year or even when we did we didn't always take photographs so it doesn't pretend to be anything but a story between two people who worked together now and then over that period of time. that is a very long time and both tom and i are proud of this achievement of sorts, as well as being very proud of the book's content.

will keep you updated on any development with the book and its launch.

G-STAR

G-STAR is the label that i am associated with for over 4 years now so obviously both parties enjoy the collaboration. bar the very first campaign, we shoot these in black/white.

the latest campaign that i shot for them is out there. this time i worked with model ARIZONA MUSE and actor CALEB LAUNDRY JONES in the beautiful cold light of the french alps. herewith some of the images.

A MOST WANTED MAN

the shooting of my new film A MOST WANTED MAN started a month ago in hamburg, germany. getting incredible performances from the actors amongst which are philip seymour hoffman, rachel mcadams, willem dafoe, nina hoss, grigory dobrygin and daniel brühl.

my DoP is benoit delhomme so it will look strong, poetic and modern. the film is based on john le carré's book of the same title and deals with a possible terrorist threat in hamburg post 9/11. if all goes to plan the movie's release will be in autumn 2013, but expect to find more updates here during this process.

HERBERT GRÖNEMEYER

herbert grönemeyer's new record I WALK is in the english language and contains his best songs in a way they fit together (so not a greatest hits idea) plus 2 new ones, all with english lyrics.

we shot the cover image 2 years ago in portugal for his last record but never used it till now. personally i think this is his best record so far and the contributions by bono and antony hegarthy will make sure that a lot of people who are unfamiliar with him, will pay attention i reckon.

BECK'S

during the summer of 2012 beck's beer in germany and italy continued their artist's beer bottle series that in the past included artists such as damien hirst, gilbert & george, tracey emin etc, with a new series that included myself.

it was a strange encounter the first time i saw myself on a bottle in a bar on a german train. herewith the beer bottles, the poster and the original photograph 'a. curtis' from my 'a.somebody' series that was made into an oval shape.
