There’s something about Anton Corbijn’s portraiture that makes you stare. Maybe it’s the slow shutter speed, which allows the Dutch heavyweight to capture moments and gestures many other photographers would miss (hence the signature granular quality). Or maybe it’s because his modus operandi is to make people wonder, even when they’re looking at a familiar A-list face (which they almost always are). “People want to know too much,” he says. “I want people to discover it themselves, and not to give away all the stories about the photographs.” So while there’s an intimacy to Corbijn’s portraiture—often most pronounced when his subjects are clothed—don’t always believe what you see.
