“My first photo book was in 1998 with [American singer-songwriter] Patti Smith when she came back to performing,” Stipe says from his home in Athens, Georgia. “Then, I vowed to myself I would put out a book a year for the rest of my life. It took me 20 years to actually manifest that.”

Check out Michael’s interview with Andrew Sun of the South China Morning Post as they discuss Michael’s latest book, why he values “fearlessness,” and his latest musical projects.
