I am the belgian photographer who took that iconic Ian Curtis picture at the Plan K, Brussels.
Back in the 80s, I saw a feature about Martin Hannett in a magazine / paper. The article was illustrated by a photo showing Martin in his kitchen. On the wall behind him, above the stove, he had pinned my pic of Ian.
I was stupid enough not to keep a copy of that article. So now I am desperately seeking the photographer who took that picture of Martin to buy a print from her/him.
Can anyone help? Please !

FAC 51 The Hacienda
The Names

Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.

Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
