Famed for shooting superstars from Bjork to U2 in offbeat poses, Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn is himself taking center stage with two exhibitions to mark his 60th birthday.From famous musicians like Nirvana's Kurt Cobain, Nick Cave or Miles Davis to artist Ai WeiWei and even a unique series of self-portraits, Corbijn has dug up a treasure trove that is now on show at two neighboring museums in The Hague.For the first time, the "1-2-3-4" exhibition for instance shows pictures Corbijn took of the Rolling Stones prancing around wearing strange masks, all shot in his trademark monochrome style."Hollands Deep," whose title comes from the huge estuary south of the port city of Rotterdam near where Corbijn grew up, includes self-portraits with the artist dressed as his musical heroes – Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Sid Vicious, Kurt Cobain and John Lennon, to name a few.
