Anton Corbijn

de PURY Presents Anton Corbijn
In February 2022, Anton Corbijn and de PURY revealed a special presentation of rarely seen, limited and final editions of photographs including portraits of notable figures such as Kate Moss, Virgil Abloh, Damien Hirst, Gerhard Richter, and Naomi Campbell to name a few.
Corbijn’s style of photography gives a raw edge to his subjects, capturing imperfection and personality by shooting with a slow shutter speed to capture gestures and movement in a unique way. Starting in the late 20th century, his style of producing black and white photos using grainy film became an important part of our visual culture, and is a technique that has been widely utilised since.
