Photography was the dominant theme of the evening on Tuesday night... after the Henny Garfunkel opening, it was off to the NYC premiere of acclaimed photographer (and music video director) Anton Corbijn's first feature, "Control." Not surprisingly, the film is beautifully composed and photographed, in stunning black & white. As my good friend Tim accurately noted after the screening, Corbijn is the most influential photographer of our own times, having created iconic still and video images of some of our personal favorite musical artists: U2, R.E.M., Nirvana...

Pictured is the after-party at Mark Seliger and Brent Langton's 401 Projects photo gallery on West St. downtown. The venue is currently showing "Visions of Rock" a show of photos by famous rock stars that was curated by Seliger and designed by Lou Reed & Steve Kasher. Among the images on view in this shot is a topless shot of Pink by Bryan Adams (center, alongside images by Patti Smith and Mick Fleetwood). Adams also has shots of Queen Elizabeth, Tony Blair, and Brian Wilson in the show...
