Michael has a new book out (titled: “Michael Stipe”), and he’ll be discussing it on the ICA Milano YouTube Channel next week. Tune in Live on April 13 at 7:00 PM (Italy); 1PM ET/10AM PT: https://bit.ly/2PYxrGV
About the Book:
“In this 3rd, photo-based chapter of the Damiani series, Michael Stipe explores strength, courage, and vulnerability, pausing the project abruptly due to the covid-19 pandemic. What follows is a lockdown interpretation of a 21st century portrait, with a resolute desire to show our resilience, our humor, our collective fortitude, and our 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.
The photo book is enriched by free audio content which will deepen and enhance the discovery of the images. Scanning the QR code opens access to the “making of”, anecdotes, and the intention behind the book, as told by Michael Stipe: “This unique QR code will link you to descriptions of the process of creating these images and this book”. GOODmood is the technical partner for the development and distribution of the audio content featured in the book.
