Photo Shoot by Jesse Frohman, 1993. 

"I’ve seen many great pictures of [Cobain]," Frohman noted. "There are some other photographers that have done wonderful portraits of him. You know, he’s a handsome man, he’s got his eyes full of expression. Those pictures are different, and they’re interesting. But to me, there’s something about these pictures that transcend connecting to a person."

Frohman’s insightful portrait of an idol transcends the nature of celebrity photography. The pictures are as humanizing as they are glorifying. Cobain appears as a goofily provocative iconoclast, while revealing a more depressing side of the life of a great artist dependent on drugs. These photographs, captured not long before the time of his death, provide a fascinating insight into the end of the life of a rock star.
