(as before, the thumbnails link to much larger versions!)
This was taken in the ghost town of Bodie, CA, which is quite an extraordinary place, regardless of being the location for a U2 photo shoot. ;)
That's one of my favorites of Bono. I cannot explain why but it always makes me think of Greg Carroll. To me, there's just a quiet, contemplative mood in that picture. Zabriske Point, Death Valley.
Just a nice, serious portrait of Adam. I'm not exactly sure where this one was taken.
Again, all of these are Anton Corbijn photographs, taken whenever U2 came out to the desert to take photographs (late 1986 or early 1987?) They thought they were going to escape chilly Ireland for the warm, sunny desert of the south-west USA. HA! "Desert" only means a low quantity of water, and yes, it does get quite cold in California. ;-P I think the chill was the excuse for all the grim expressions. ;) Wish I could find the quote on that but I don't know where to begin searching!
