‘Thunderbirds are Go’ popped up in my head, when I saw these Anton Corbijn portraits of the members of Kraftwerk. Great idea, this clean approach, and it suits their synthetic analog-computer music very well.

“Ich bin der Musikant mit Taschenrechner in der Hand
Ich addiere
Und subtrahiere
Kontrolliere
Und Komponiere
Und wenn ich diese Taste drück
Spielt er ein kleines Musikstück”.

(7 Shots) | (Short Mexico-break) | Today was the last day of the large Anton Corbijn retrospective ‘Hollands Deep’, in the ‘Gemeentemuseum’ in The Hague. An additional exhibition, called ‘1-2-3-4’, in the ‘Hague Museum of Photography’, is extended till the 16th of august. Great work! Quite a lot of his photo’s are famous; but it was special to see them ‘for real’. Feeling, atmosphere, special-characteristic moments, that is what matters in his work; technical stuff is minor, like in the music of Joy Division or Tom Waits; passion and meaning speak. I had my camera with me; but it felt silly to take shots from shots. After a while I started to shoot the exhibition and the uniqueness of all these wonderful photo’s, being together.
