Corbijn's U2 & Depeche Mode...Similar Or What?

I love both bands, and I also love Anton Corbijn's photography, which, although he has a distinct style, I find a lot of his work with both groups almost identical at times.

See what I mean?

If anyone finds others, post 'em.




U2 in late '86:


DM in '87:



DM in 1990:


U2 in 1990/91:

It's a speaker with "bong" on it.

I Anton Corbijn's photography and music videos!!! I've noticed the similarity too over the years between U2 and DM, not just in the music but visually.

I also see similarities with the Killers new video (done by Corbijn) and old U2 photos.
