Did you ever wonder what Ian Curtis’ daughter Natalie looked like? I did. This picture was taken at a screening of the movie Control in London. The movie is based on the book Touching From A Distance written by her mother Deborah and is about the troubled life of Ian Curtis and the band Joy Division. Natalie was born in 1979, one year before her legendary father took his own life. Since the age of four Natalie has been interested in taking pictures, and she is now working as a photographer in Manchester. “Photographs of Joy Division probably had more effect on me than anything else, especially those by Kevin Cummins and Anton Corbijn” she says in an interview.
