“When Michael Stipe was lead singer and lyricist for R.E.M, it was clear he had talents and interests beyond music. He was deeply involved in crafting the album covers and other aspects of the band’s visual identity. In 1998 he published his first photography book with Patti Smith, and in recent years he’s published three more books of photography. His latest is titled “Michael Stipe: Portraits Still Life.” – Debbie Millman
