The most famous rock photographer you’ve never heard of: Anton Corbijn

I have ambivalent feelings towards Anton Corbijn. On one hand, I respect his talent for producing some of the most intimate and revealing portraits of rock royalty during the last few decades. On the other hand, I remember being left gasping for air when I received his quote for a Wall Street Journal Europe advertising campaign that I had written and I wanted him to shoot the portraits of European business leaders. In retrospect, he was probably worth every penny – but it wasn’t my money to spend. Opportunity missed. Worth a read.
