ABOUT THE BOOK:
In this remarkable collection of intimate and compelling photographs — featuring R.E.M., as well as Thom Yorke of Radiohead, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Michael Moore, Neil Young, Patti Smith, The Dixie Chicks, and other artists — you will see the band as they have never been seen before. Over the past six years, photographer David Belisle has traveled with R.E.M. on tours as well as photographed their recording and video sessions, and has captured their on- and off-stage lives with unprecedented access. The 175 color and black and white photographs in the book are accompanied by handwritten captions by the band and an introduction by Michael Stipe. These lush images, photographed with an intensely artistic eye, capture the members of R.E.M. in public performances around the world and in the most personal spaces that only the band and their closest friends can access.
