Satisfaction guaranteed for any music lover, Anton Corbijn is showing some of his finest work at Fotografiska in Stockholm this fall.

Presented as Anton Corbijn 1-2-3-4, the exhibition is packed with unpublished pictures of bands like Depeche Mode, Nirvana, Siouxsie Sioux and the Banshees, Kate Bush, the Rolling Stones to name just a few. Major idol alert, this show is like walking through a secret Hall of Fame, a piece of history seen through Corbijn’s magic eyes. Very nicely curated, the man himself walked around writing descriptions of the pictures prior to the opening, filling in details about names and places straight onto the wall. Corbijn’s aesthetic being both playful and serious, many of the frames show the artists playing dress up, and yes, you will get to see Mick Jagger in drag. The exhibition runs Sept 16 – Dec 4 2016, see it asap or cry later.
