Just few weeks before the long awaited Paris release of Ian Curtis biopic Control by Anton Corbijn (watch the video trailer below), Agnés B. launches tomorrow (September, 12) the Joy Division photo exhibit at her store in the Les Halles district where the pictures were actually taken 28 years ago by Pierre René-Worms (see the invitation above).
This was on December 18, 1979, the day of the Joy Division concert in the Bains-Douches (CD of this concert was released on 2001) which was performed in almost empty auditorium.
It was Ian Curtis' first and last visit to Paris. Five months later, on May 18, 1980, at age 24, he committed suicide.
Joy Division photo exhibit at Agnes B. store, 3 and 6 rue du Jour 75001 Paris, Metro: Les Halles until October 6, 2007.
