Anton Corbijn - Research

Anton Corbijn is a dutch photographer, music video director and film director. Most note able for his work as visual director for Depeche Mode and U2.

He has worked with Joy Division on two occasions, firstly he directed 1 out of their 2 songs, He worked on Atmosphere. Atmosphere contained characters wearing black-hooded cloaks and white burial shrouds which walked around at some parts carried objects with stills of band members performing on. What makes this video important is the art style used which Anton is famous for. He used black and white filters on the video to create a style that JD is known for.
Anton also worked with JD (though this was after they finished) on a feature film called Control which is a 2007 black-and-white biographical film about Joy Division singer Ian Curtis.

 Anton's style is seen over alot of other pieces of his work, especially on his photography and work with Depeche Mode. He used black and white filters for large parts of his videos such as DM's Enjoy The Silence.

As well as his photography (below)

We are planning on using Anton's black and white filters as inspiration for our music video as we intend on trying to copy his style for two reasons, to follow Joy Divisions visual style and because personally we love the style.

  1. You should read the highly informative section in the Money For Nothing book on AC; you're missing the philosophy he brings to his art, which could be highly relevant to your own work
