Unpublished work on commemoration, effigies and iconic figures by master photographer Anton Corbijn


Master photographer and director/filmmaker Anton Corbijn presents in his latest publication a series of striking images focusing on icons and how they are commemorated.


IKONEN contains three series: Cemeteries, a.somebody and Lenin, USSR.


Cemeteries is an intriguing collection of black-and-white photos of gravestones. In a.somebody, we can see dozens of self-portraits after past legends from the world of music, photographed in Strijen, the village of Corbijn’s birth – outdoors and in his studio. The book also shows previously unpublished series on Lenin’s visual presence in the former USSR from the early 1980s.


Publication to accompany the eponymous exhibition, from 30 September 2022 to 26 February 2023 in Landgoed Het Hof in Bergen, The Netherlands.


With a preface by Anton Corbijn and a tekst contribution by art writer Dominic Eichler.
