Best known as the lead singer of the band R.E.M, Michael Stipe has many creative disciplines and this untitled publication is the third in his series of photobooks. The work presents portraits of resilience and vulnerability, with QR-linked audio of comments and anecdotes from Michael Stipe.
The initial project was abruptly put on pause due to the covid-19 pandemic. What followed is a lockdown interpretation of a 21st century portrait, with a resolute desire to show resilience, humour, collective fortitude, and adaptability. Subjects include Tilda Swinton, John Giorno, Joan Jonas, Kirsten Dunst, Beth Ditto, Gus Van Sant, Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Helena Christensen, Michèle Lamy, and Sophie Calle amongst many others.
