Michael Stipe is the third, photo-based chapter of the Damiani book series presenting different aspects of Stipe’s artistic practice. 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.

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.

JR is a French photographer and street artist with the largest art gallery in the world. Thanks to his photographic collage technique, he exhibits his work free to see on the walls of the whole world—attracting the attention of those who do not usually go to museums.
