STALKING MICHAEL STIPE: ANOTHER PROP TO OCCUPY MY TIME

A series of photographs documenting the spaces to which I was led within the pursuit of my one-time rock n' roll idol. Chance and a number of Internet searches led me to Michael Stipe's door. When Michael emerged the project began. When I lost his trail the project ended. Everywhere in between was considered territory for photographic activity. The imagery on this page was accumulated within the 36 hours that I followed.

"Stalking Michael Stipe: Another Prop to Occupy My Time" is experienced in 3 parts: 30” x 35” photographs, an interactive 35mm slide box experience, and a performed lecture detailing the research, execution, and moments of coincidence that happened along the way.

Many have inquired about why I chose Michael Stipe as my subject. In short, for me, he was worth it.
