Anton Corbijn – chosen music videos
He directed such music videos as among others 1989 “Personal Jesus” by Depeche Mode and 1993 “Heart-Shaped Box” by Nirvana. In 2007 he directed a British biopic about a vocalist of Joy Division, Ian Curtis, entitled “Control”. Corbijn avoids photographic technique which is modern and full of splendour. He prefers more a style which is rather raw and uses black and white colours a lot.
