The definitive look at one of the most iconic rock bands of all time. Joy Division pioneered a genre of music and defined the look and sound of the post-punk era. Kevin Cummins began his career just as the band formed, and for the few short years of their career was given closer access to them than any other photographer.
Joy Division – published exactly 30 years after lead singer Ian Curtis' suicide – collects more than two hundred of Cummins' photographs that capture their quiet introspection offstage, their close relationships as bandmates, and Curtis' legendary energy in live performances and supplements the iconic images with concert tickets, unreleased record sleeves, Factory Records flyers, and other rare ephemera. This book is the most exhaustive and heavily illustrated celebration of the band ever produced.
