Anton Corbijn: Midnight Chats – Episode 123

A legendary photographer and filmmaker on this week's podcast

Legendary Dutch music photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn is the man who’s made black and white photography his own since 1979, while shooting everyone from Joy Division to Depeche Mode to Bowie to The Rolling Stones. He became the visual creative director of Depeche Mode and U2 around the time he started directing some of the most iconic music videos of our time, from ‘Enjoy The Silence’ to Nirvana’s ‘Heart Shaped Box’.

In 2007, Anton directed the Ian Curtis biopic Control starring Sam Riley, followed by Hollywood studio picture The American, starting George Clooney, in 2010.

We talk about all of this and Corbijn’s latest documentary Squaring The Circle in this week’s podcast. We do NOT talk about what Anton makes of Basildon. We’re very careful about that.
