-Corbijn's grainy pictorial style has a sense of grit and honesty that fits his favorite subjects: rock-and-rollers. Best known for his image-making work with acts including U2 and Depeche Mode, the photographer/filmmaker has shot numerous characters in the music biz--from the Stones to Arcade Fire and Kate Bush to John Lydon--seemingly with their guards down, as if they're just hanging with a friend. Among the highlights is a series of Tom Waits images--culled from the 2013 title Waits/Corbijn*--showing the visual collaborators in rare, wacky form.-
