Sunday Times, 14 April 2013

Back in the grim but glorious days of 1978, a young Dutch photographer named Anton Corbijn arrived in Los Angeles. It was his first trip to America. He took a taxi to the Tropicana Motel on Santa Monica Boulevard. Stepping out of the cab, he found Tom Waits sitting on the sidewalk.

“It was,” he recalls, savouring the memory, “a Hollywood dream come true.”

He shouldn’t have been surprised. The Tropicana, now sadly gone, was to LA what the Chelsea Hotel was and is to New York — rock’n’roll central. There’s no point in listing the people who stayed there because everybody stayed there. Tom was a permanent resident; he lived in a bungalow round the back.

On May 5th, WAITS/CORBIJN ’77 –’11, a limited edition book by Anton Corbijn and Tom Waits will be presented for the first time at &Foam the project space of Foam, the Photography Museum Amsterdam. To celebrate the book release, there will be an exhibition of unique material on display, allowing an insight into the book’s creative process and how this collaboration came to fruition. Anton Corbijn will be present at the event on May 5th to sign copies, ahead of the book’s worldwide release on the 8th of May. The presentation is organized by Foam, which since opening its doors in 2001, has established itself as one of Europe’s primary venues for photography. Foam has hosted solo exhibitions by key names in international photography, such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Richard Avedon, Diane Arbus, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Annie Leibovitz and Anton Corbijn, whose major exhibition of recent work “Inwards and Onwards” was Foam's highest attended show to date.
