In 2008, Kurt Cobain’s vault was opened for one day so that renowned photographer Geoff Moore could shoot the late Nirvana frontman’s personal possessions for Charles R. Cross’s book Cobain Unseen. For the first time ever, Moore will show fine art images from this shoot at Los Angeles’s KM Fine Arts gallery in the exhibition “Endorsement: The Unseen Cobain Photos.”
The title of the exhibit takes its name from a word scribbled on Cobain’s beloved Converse sneakers, which were photographed by Moore. Other striking images include Cobain’s broken guitar with handwritten lyrics, journals and final recordings, heart-shaped boxes, doll images, and Cobain’s stuffed monkey doll.
“Endorsement: The Unseen Cobain Photos” runs at KM Fine Arts from Feb. 11 to March 26, but you can glimpse some of the rare and stunning images here.
