Dutch photographer/director Anton Corbijn has been taking iconic photos of Tom Waits for over three decades at this point and now the pair are releasing a hardcover book of their collaborative efforts, combining Corbijn-shot portraits and lyrics “from major Waits albums.” The book, titled Waits/Corbijn, contains 160 pages, including 75 color and duotone plates, and will drop this fall from publisher Schirmer/Mosel.
Meanwhile, Both Waits and Corbijn have been turning their attention towards film of late, with Waits opting for a starring role as Mr. Nick, aka the Devil, in Terry Gilliam’s forthcoming The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Corbijn is following up his solid feature film directorial debut, the Ian Curtis biopic Control, with A Very Private Gentleman. According to IMDB, the latter film has George Clooney signed on as both a producer and lead actor. Waits is also doing a movie with Denzel Washington due out next year called The Book of Eli.
