Michael Stipe


Featured photograph, of ceramicist Caroline Wallner and her daughter Lucille Reback, is reproduced from ‘Michael Stipe'.

Portraits of resilience and vulnerability, with QR-linked audio of comments and anecdotes from Stipe

In this third, 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.

The book is enriched by free audio content which deepens and enhances 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 Stipe.

As an undergraduate studio art major at the University of Georgia, Michael Stipe (born 1960) studied photography and painting before leaving school upon the formation of R.E.M., the band for which he served as frontman and singer/songwriter until its dissolution in 2011. The sensibility that he began to develop during his time as an art student transferred to the spectrum of his work for R.E.M., from art directing all graphic, video and stage design, to writing, composing and performance, and his iconoclastic personal style. Stipe’s visibility as a media figure in the popular culture of the 1980s and ’90s left an indelible mark on the aesthetic trends of the time, many of which have trickled down to contemporary culture.

A remarkable new artist's book from Michael Stipe

A remarkable new artist's book from Michael Stipe

Featured photograph, of poet and performance artist John Giorno, is reproduced from Michael Stipe, the third in Damiani’s series of photo-based artist’s books by Stipe. Collecting “portraits” of Stipe’s most beloved, fearless and resilient friends, family and heroes—whether as photographs or rendered as vases by ceramicist Caroline Wallner or book covers by master printer Ruth Lingen—the book also functions as a poem and a surprisingly powerful self-portrait. Whatever form, this is the one book where we can encounter Tilda Swinton, Claude Cahun, Breonna Taylor, Thurgood Marshall, Wolfgang Tillmans, Gus Van Sant, Jonas Mekas, Sophie Calle and Greta Thurnberg in one place, accompanied by a unique QR code that allows the reader to link to descriptions of the process of creating the images and the book. continue to blog
