Representing the ultimate publication on the music photography of Anton Corbijn, one of the most important photographers and directors working today, this collection of images, many never before published, focuses on Corbijn's evolving fascination with the music industry, from the 1970s to the present day. Anton Corbijn's interest in music has been the engine of an illustrious decades-long career that has most recently involved the making of feature length films such as The American, A Most Wanted Man, and Life, due to be released in 2015. This gloriously illustrated, oversized book pays homage to Corbijn's obsession with rock and roll--an interest that has led to lifelong friendships with Bono, Michael Stipe, Dave Gahan, and other iconic musicians. Looking back over four decades, it features hundreds of creative, offbeat images that Corbijn was able to capture largely as a result of his close relationships with his subjects. Nearly every revered musician and band is represented in Corbijn's archives: Nick Cave to Nirvana, U2 to R.E.M., the Rolling Stones to Siouxie and the Banshees. Many of the portraits are accompanied by their subjects' own take on Corbijn's distinct style and approach. Also included here are previously unpublished photos of the late Joe Cocker and the band Depeche Mode, who consider him an honorary member. A fitting tribute to an innovative and deeply passionate photographer, this book will rock fans of music and photography.

Anton Corbijn's "firstborn child" Famouz, our own publication launched in 1989, really sparked things off. All of a sudden, the photographer, who had long been a nominee for success behind the scenes of the pop world and record industry, entered the limelight. His portraits of rock and pop idols had a completely different, completely novel slant: they were pensive, melancholic, more personal, galaxies away from the world of showbiz, glamour and image makers. Corbijn is now famous all over the world. His photographs, which led to a new era of music photography, are on display at international exhibitions. With an introduction by Bono and designed by star designer Peter Saville, the book contains photos of Tom Waits, Sinead O'Connor, Pete Townsend, Joe Cocker, Siouxie Sioux, David Bowie, Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel, Bono, Kate Bush, Sting, Leonard Cohen and many more.

The locals in the southern Italian town where he lives call him Signor Farfalla--Mr. Butterfly: for he is a discreet gentleman who paints rare butterflies. His life is inconspicuous--mornings spent brushing at a canvas, afternoons idling in the cafes, and evening talks with his friend the town priest over a glass of brandy. Yet there are other sides to this gentleman's life: Clara: the young student who moonlights in the town bordello. And another woman who arrives with $100,000 and a commission, but not for a painting of butterflies. With this assignment returns the dark fear that has dogged Signor Farfalla's mysterious life. Almost instantly, he senses a deadly circle closing in on him, one which he may or may not elude. Part thriller, part character study, part drama of deceit and self-betrayal, The American (A Very Private Gentleman) shows Martin Booth at the very height of his powers.

Few photographers live up to the term "image-maker" as completely as Anton Corbijn. His photographs, as well-known as the rock stars he has been shooting for the past twenty years, often reveal truths that surprise even his subjects -- uncovering hidden aspects of their personalities, and imprinting them into our collective memory. His artistry has shaped, if not transformed, the image of numerous rock performers. His legendary portrait of the group Joy Division in a subway station, or his unforgettable depiction of David Bowie clad only in a loincloth, for example, are as instantly recognizable as the Mona Lisa. In 33 Still Lives, his fourth book, Anton Corbijn has created a new series of pictures featuring international stars from the world of the movies and music, ranging from Bjork, Bono, and Marianne Faithful to Clint Eastwood and Robert de Niro. In this innovative and daring collection he stages 33 "film stills" of imaginary movies -- single-picture stories disguised as cinema verite photographs which Corbijn refers to as "fake documentaries". The connection between these images remains mysterious and enigmatic, yet they draw the viewer into an imaginary world whose mesmerizing pull is hard to resist. In his introductory essay, art and media theorist Ulf Poschardt points out the singular position Corbijn's work occupies in a world of mechanically manufactured images: "Photography for Anton Corbijn has always been a search for fissures in the cocoon of make-believe". 33 Still Lives is both an adventurous expression of Corbijn's synergetic vision, and a profoundly beautiful collection of portraits of personalities we think we know, but never really can.

The world of skateboarding meets architectural beauty Fred Mortagne is a self-taught French director and photographer who is internationally acclaimed for his images of skateboarding and street photography. Attraper au vol(Catch in the Air) is the culmination of Mortagne's photographic career, from 2000 to 2015. A feast of lines and angles, his black-and-white compositions blend his subjects into their environments, offering an abstract perspective on architecture, geometry and the human figure. His work intrigues both skaters and nonskaters alike, as it emphasizes the esthetic beauty of skate and urban culture rather than pure performance (although the raw talent of his subjects is readily apparent). "As a young skate rat in the early nineties, I was super into watching skate videos, and very early I was sensitive to how the videos were made," he told an interviewer. "When the filming was good, I was super thrilled. This pushed me to begin filming my own clips with my friends, for fun ... for over 30 years, it has been the love of my life. Skateboarding has taken me to so many places--not just physically, but culturally and artistically." This book includes a foreword by the world-renowned photographer Anton Corbijn and an essay by legendary skateboarder Geoff Rowley, with whom Mortagne has worked extensively. Fred Mortagne, also known as French Fred, is a skateboarder, photographer and filmmaker living in France.

The Vinyl Factory presents 3D and the art of Massive Attack by Robert del Naja (aka 3D) a 300-page 12"x12" hardback reversible book format with two different covers starting at the past or the present (with screen printed front covers) on the visual history of the artist and his band who have sold over 11 million records worldwide. Compiled and designed by 3D using images from a personal archive and original artifacts scanned by the artist for the record. Robert's artwork has come to define the iconic style of his band and the book explores their visual history, presenting both familiar and previously unseen work, from his influential graffiti and stencil art in the Wild Bunch-era of the 80s to Massive Attack cover designs and paste-ups and paintings. Also included is his work made in collaboration with Nick Knight, Tom Hingston, Judy Blame and Michael Nash Associates, as well as unseen photographs documenting Del Naja's ongoing LED work with United Visual ArtistsUnited Visual Artists, and his recent work with filmmaker Adam Curtis. The 300-page book also features an in-depth interview with the artist, where he describes the development of the band's artwork and record sleeve designs, as well as offering insight into his process and inspirations. Del Naja's background as a graffiti artist has shaped his evolving aesthetic, as well as a strong ethos of do it yourself creativity. His instincts as an artist were forged in an atmosphere of spontaneity and innovation - from making flyers to throwing warehouse parties - and this way of working informed the first record sleeves he created. Inspired by magazine culture and comics, 3D drew on wide-ranging influences, from New Yorks hip-hop scene and Japanese graphics, Jean-Michel Basquiats cultural juxtapositions to Warhols pop imagery, politics and punk.
