    another icon of poetic photography...i've been trying to select work that has something to do with fashion, sorry, i can't tell the sources...i had saved them some time ago.
    in an exhibition of his work i saw some beautiful fashion shots in colour...but i cannot find them anywhere online, so black-and-white only:

    Ok, so this pic is not fashion related, but I thought it would be ok for me to post it anyway. I think it's beautiful. It's the cover of the album Love Affair by Swedish singer Sophie Zelmani.

    I'm only familiar with his music videos ... he's pure genius!

    He made Nirvana's "Heart-shaped box" and some for U2 and Depeche mode ... I love him!

    It was Antons work that got me interested in photography in 1984, I love his work. Met him in Copenhagen at Mortals, really friendly dude. Thanks for posting these.

    I get a porno feel of his work. Strangely enough. I like his portraits but nothing exceptional.

    Love that lith print look.
    For anyone interested Corbijn mostly uses Kodak Tri-X in a Hasselblad and 3 lenses and is printed on Oriental Seagul paper in Lith developer. He seldom uses a flash or studio.

    i don't want to be bitchy, but we can't accept google as an image source since google doesn't host the pictures you're posting. i know it's a bit annoying to pay so much attention to detail when preparing a post, but we have to. also, please try not to re-post pictures.
    thanks for your cooperation:flower:

    apart from that, great story fugfashion, and thanks for the images.
    fintan, thanks for the information!
