Some people know that i’m really in love with the work of Anton Corbijn, one of the photographers who has most influenced and inspired me in the world of visual imaging. And i think that many more people are about to know who he is as his first feature film Control, is set for release in the coming weeks. The movie is about Ian Curtis, of Joy Division, you know the “Love will tear us apart” band, plus many other songs.
Anton knew the band and did shoots for Joy Division at the hight of their popularity and I can’t wait to see what his treatment of the movie is going to be. It’s all shot in black and white and features an amazing soundtrack. Go check out the movies website, and you can download a podcast with interviews from Anton and others involved in the movie.
