Previously unpublished work on commemoration, effigies and iconic figures by master photographer Anton Corbijn

Master photographer and director/filmmaker Anton Corbijn presents in his latest publication a series of striking images focusing on icons and how they are commemorated.

IKOИEN contains three series: Cemeteries, a. somebody and Lenin, USSR.

Cemeteries is an intriguing collection of black-and-white photos of gravestones. In a. somebody, we can see dozens of self-portraits after past legends from the world of music, photographed in Strijen, the village of Corbijn’s birth – outdoors and in his studio. The book also shows previously unpublished series on Lenin’s visual presence in the former USSR from the early 1980s.

With a preface by Anton Corbijn and a text contribution by art writer Dominic Eichler.
