The first edition of AntwerpPhoto, the risk that next month will open in Pilotage on the Antwerp Scheldekaaien, can work with new images of Anton Corbijn.
The first edition of AntwerpPhoto, a photo festival that turns out with four exhibitions, will run from 24 June to 30 september in the Pilotage, the protected 19th-century building on the Schelde. It is the first time that the building is open to the public.
Besides a group exhibition of Belgian photographers (including the work of Frederik Buyckx, Stephan Vanfleteren and Carl De Keyzer), the series of documentary photographer Michael Wolf about high-rise buildings in the city of hong Kong and a meeting with the laureates of the Prix Carmignac (a prize is awarded to photographers who onderzoeksreportages make in places where fundamental human rights are under pressure), hope the organisers also visitors to provoke, with some never before seen pictures of the Dutch top photographer Anton Corbijn.
The solo exhibition 1-2-3-4 shows more than 400 lesser known and hardly any previous work of Corbijn, thus AntwerpPhoto. Visitors will be able to marvel at individual portraits of, among others, Joe Cocker, David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Grace Jones, Courtney Love, Morissey, and Neil Young.
For the first time in over a decade, internationally renowned photographer and director Anton Corbijn is returning to Belgium with a solo exhibition. 1-2-3-4 is a collection of the music photography that made Bailey famous: iconic images of the greats of rock ’n roll, such as Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, The Rolling Stones, U2, R. E. M., Metallica and Nirvana. For AntwerpPhoto, Corbijn complemented and updated the 1-2-3-4 collection with new and previously unpublished images.
