In the late 1980s, Michael Hutchence befriended a young fan named Richard Simpkin who later became a close friend, a confidént and unofficial photographer and archivist. Over the next decade Simpkin, now a professional photographer and an avid collector of celebrity photographs and memorabilia, took hundreds of private photos of Hutchence and his family, collected autographs of the singer and the band, and amassed a collection of rare posters and artefacts of Hutchence’s all too brief life.
Michael in Pictures: A Celebration of the Life of Michael Hutchence showcases Simpkin’s collection in a stunningly produced trade and limited edition publication, with rare insights from the author on an amazing career in the world spotlight.
The limited edition of “Michael” includes a unique, clam shell casing; individually numbered, with a frameable A4 photo of Michael. This edition is a must for any fan of Hutchence or INXS, or pop culture lover!
