Paul Edmond was Duran Duran’s first photographer. He captured the essence of the New Romantic movement, providing a unique window into Duran’s past and revealing the band as never seen before. The prints in this portfolio measure approximately 16″ x 20″, printed on watercolor paper. Most of the images can also be found in Paul’s book of photography, Duran Duran Unseen, offering an insightful look at the band’s roots and the musical landscape from which Duran emerged.
Dean Karr directed one of the most original, haunting videos in Duran Duran’s catalogue. Plucked from the band’s 1997 Medazzaland album, Out Of My Mind took on a richly textured, thoroughly unique visual interpretation in Karr’s hands. The images in this section were used in the video’s animation sequences, showing a heavily disguised Simon Le Bon and an elaborately outfitted Nick Rhodes. Visit his website at deankarr.com.
