Inwards and Onwards

Anton Corbijn ©

Anton Corbijn - inwards and onwards
23 June - 1 September 2011, FOAM Amsterdam

Anton Corbijn's most recent photographic project. A few of his favourite
 artists, including Gerhard Richter, Alexander McQueen, Richard Prince, 
Iggy Pop, Anselm Kiefer, Damien Hirst, Tom Waits, Peter Doig, Bruce 
Springsteen, Lucian Freud and Karel Appel. 

To be seen from June 23 - 1 September 2011 at FOAM, Amsterdam.

"Anton Corbijn is interested in how artists struggle with the creative 
process: the pain and the drama of the act of creation. His monumental 
black-and-white portraits blend austerity and aesthetics and attract 
attention because of the deliberate and exacting way they capture the 
character of the person being portrayed. The work shows Corbijn's 
concentrated gaze, his feeling for wonder and his ability to 
empathise with another."
