The Buzz Group has tightly worked with photographer Richard Simpkin and New Holland Publishers to release an illustrated book honoring the life of Australian music legend Michael Hutchence. Our efforts were focused in giving Michael in Pictures book the maximum media coverage celebrating the artist’s life and featuring never-before-seen images through the eyes of his close friend, Australian photographer Richard Simpkin. For author Richard Simpkin, it all began in 1989. A 15-year old boy wandering the car park of the Sebel Town House, waiting to meet his idol. After a long stint waiting in the car park Richard walks away with an autograph, a conversation and what was to be the start of a long-time friendship. A tribute to Michael Hutchence and a testament to the enduring friendship and memories between Michael Hutchence and Richard Simpkin between 1989 through to 1997 (2 days up until Michael’s untimely death). Michael in Pictures is a 372 page photographic journey through the heart and soul of the artist and the solid friendship that tied both musician and photographer for years. Intimate, personal & private, it’s a celebration of Michael Hutchence through the eyes, lens and heart of a friend.
