9780500517642: Kurt Cobain: The Last Session

On the 20th anniversary of his death, a powerful portrait of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana―including many previously unpublished images―taken during their last formal photo shoot before his suicide

In August 1993, when Nirvana was in New York to perform at the legendary Roseland Ballroom, Jesse Frohman photographed them for the London Observer’s Sunday magazine―the last formal photo shoot in which Cobain participated before he committed suicide on April 5th, 1994.

Over the course of ninety photographs, Cobain seems an almost feral creature, by turns gentle, playful, defiant, suffering, or absorbed in his music. There’s a diverse range of shots of Cobain with fellow band members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl and on his own, posing, performing, and greeting fans. Jon Savage’s original interview, which appeared with Frohman’s photographs in the Observer is also reproduced, giving us Cobain in his own words. The book is a touching tribute to Cobain twenty years after his tragic demise, and following Nirvana’s recent induction in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 90 illustrations, 25 in color

About the Author:

Jesse Frohman began his photography career in New York, working first as an assistant for the legendary Irving Penn. His work has appeared in many major magazines, including Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Rolling Stone, and Spin. He also shoots for advertising and recording companies. Frohman has had several solo exhibitions and his work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C.

Glenn O’Brien writes about art, music, and fashion.

Jon Savage is a Cambridge-educated writer, broadcaster, music journalist, and historian of punk. He conducted an important interview with Kurt Cobain in 1993.

Review:

“Some of the most enduring images ever taken of the rock star. All the hallmarks of grunge and Kurt’s particular sensibility are there: his Jackie O sunglasses, the chipped paint on his fingernails, the patched jeans, and, most of all, Cobain’s iconoclastic vulnerability.”
- Vogue.com

“These 100-plus images reflect Cobain’s complexity: defiance, charisma, playfulness, and sullen anger all bound up in a shaggy persona lurking behind those goofy oval sunglasses.”
- American Photo

“A moving testament to Kurt Cobain’s life.”
- Library Journal

“It's a rare thing to see almost all of the photos taken from a photo shoot and a performance....Seeing a young and already charismatic Dave Grohl is an added plus.”
- USA Today

“Frohman's insightful portraiture transcends the nature of celebrity photography. The pictures are as humanizing as they are glorifying.”
- L'Oeil de la Photographie

“Has an interesting text by Jon Savage, whose interview wit Cobain that day is transcribed.”
- The Seattle Times

“Iconic images of Kurt make me want to cheer and cry both at the same time. This glimpse into his world is one I don’t want to miss.”
- Chloë Sevigny, Porter

Descrizione libro Thames & Hudson Ltd. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Kurt Cobain: The Last Session, Jesse Frohman, Jon Savage, In July 1993, Nirvana was the biggest band in the world, and Kurt Cobain was subject to an intense level of celebrity and public scrutiny. In New York City to play the famed Roseland Ballroom and promote their new album In Utero, Cobain and Nirvana were photographed by Jesse Frohman and Cobain gave a candid interview to Jon Savage for an article in the Observer. Only nine months later, Cobain killed himself. It was the last formal photo shoot Nirvana ever did, and one of the last major interviews Cobain ever gave. Twenty years after his death, they are published here together for the first time since the Observer article, including previously unpublished material, and accompanied by new commentary from Frohman and Savage about that day, and an essay by pop culture maven Glenn OBrien on what it all might have meant. Frohmans 100-plus photographs, including contact sheets, get to the heart of one of the most beloved bands of all time, at the height of their success and the moment when everything was starting to unravel. We see Cobain as he was just months before his death, by turns feral and refined, posing on his own, goofing around with his band mates, engrossed in his music and always ambivalent about the spotlight. Savages interview reveals an optimistic side of Cobain seemingly at odds with his public image, and particularly poignant as we look back on his life. This book offers a powerful, moving portrait of Kurt Cobain and will be an important contribution to the literature of rock and roll. Codice libro della libreria B9780500517642
