Photographer, filmmaker, and video artist Anton Corbijn earned the artistic recognition he always craved by capturing, in portraits, the psychological complexities of Gerhard Richter, Alexander McQueen, Kate Moss, and myriad other influential artists, musicians, models, and designers. “He sees pleasure through guilty eyes and he sees good and evil in very dramatic ways," U2’s Bono says of Corbijn. Known for their intimacy, soft contours, and nuanced natural light, his photographic portraits emanate stillness, endowed almost with a sculptural quality. Stemming from his love of music—he began his photographic career working for popular music magazines, has designed over 75 album covers, and created many music videos—Corbijn also produced a series of Cindy Sherman-style self-portraits wherein he posed as rock legends including Elvis and Jimi Hendrix. More recently he has turned his attention to directing feature films.

Marlene Dumas
South African, b. 1953

Widely known for the gestural quality and austerity of her oil and watercolor paintings, Marlene Dumas’s work confronts difficult themes from pornography to segregation. Her figurative paintings often depict nude bodies engaged in amorous acts, some of them erotic, some disconcerting. By playing with perspective and the proportionality of these figures, Dumas highlights only what is most important—the expression, the point of contact, the epicenter of emotion. Using as her starting point photographs from her personal collection and the print media, Dumas recreates them in grays and browns, a palette well suited for her 2010 exhibition "Against the Wall" at David Zwirner, in which she captures with characteristic starkness the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
