Photographer and filmmaker who created music videos for Depeche Mode and Nirvana, as well as the political thriller Most Wanted Man.
He came to national attention for his series of photographs of Dutch musician Herman Brood, taken in 1975, before Brood’s fame.
He started out photographing musicians like the BeeGees and R.E.M. and then he moved on to directing music videos and feature films.
He was born in Strijen, Netherlands and his father was a parson to the Dutch Reformed Church, a post to which he was appointed just a year before Anton was born.
The iconic sci-fi author William Gibson used one of Corbjin’s photographs in place of his own author photo on many of his books, including his seminal work Neuromancer.

Quotes by Anton Corbijn
I don’t like fast editing.— Anton Corbijn
I feel a responsibility to myself, and not so much for the world at large. Because of my Calvinistic upbringing, I was trained to think that what you do has to have a purpose.— Anton Corbijn
Directing film is the hardest thing I have ever done.— Anton Corbijn
I’m not totally blind to the fact that I like people to see my work, but if it’s not something I would enjoy seeing in a magazine, then I think I shouldn’t be making it. I think that I don’t represent only myself, I represent more people; I mean, if I like it, then I think more people will like it because I think I’m quite a normal guy.— Anton Corbijn
I wanted to make a film as an artist, and it’s going to have to find an audience, you know. I don’t know how big the audience will be.— Anton Corbijn
