Retrospective: Anton Corbijn – 1-2-3-4 in Den Haag

The Fotomuseum Den Haag – The Netherlands is currently showing a retrospective of Anton Corbijn titled 1-2-3-4 to celebrate the photographer’s 60th birthday. The exhibition, that opened this weekend, features over over 300 shots of bands and singers like Nirvana, U2, The Rolling Stones but most of all Nick Cave.

Nick Cave was actually present at the opening and did a little set at the piano. You can check a small video on Instagram of The Mercy Seat. A fantastic surprise for anybody’s in attendance. If you were one of the lucky one to be there, tell us all about it!

An exhibition not to be missed especially if you plan to attend the Den Haag concert. It’d be a nice pre-concert treat!

The exhibition runs until June 21st 2015. For the opening hours and directions be sure to check their website.

A book of 1-2-3-4 (€64,50) will also be available at the museum

  1. I imagine it to be really boring to chill at home for 4 months straight. I imagine we all go to work or do things most days, so I indeed think Nick could spit out even more, but I have no real insight into the industry and bet it is quite a lot of shit you have to pass before you can throw out the final product and he has to find stuff inbetween.

    Love that photo of him very much. It is raw and sexy, especially the hand and lightening. Miss his messier Grinderman days a bit.
