Charles Peterson's Kurt Cobain Advocate Photo Shoot 25 Years Later

We welcome back prolific photographer Charles Peterson as he looks back at this unreleased photo of Kurt Cobain, who passed away 25 years ago today. Taken on New Year's Day of 1993, this photo captures Cobain at The Inn At The Market hotel in Seattle, Washington. The band had just released a collection of outtakes and b-sides with Incesticide and was getting ready to record their 3rd and final album In Utero. Reimagined in beautiful hand-pulled screen prints, this shot was originally taken as part of a photo session for the cover of the national LGBT-magazine The Advocate. Be sure to snag one of these early as the Silver, Gold and Rainbow variants as all are available in extremely limited editions of 27. Read on to find out more about our latest hand-pulled screen prints with photographer Charles Peterson. . .

"The shoot was New Year's Day 1993, and it didn't happen until about 11 o'clock in the evening. It was for The Advocate, the LGBT monthly magazine. It was for the glossy cover and an inside piece. He'd done this, at the time, controversial interview saying that, yeah, he thought, "Oh, I could be gay, too."

I can't recall why, but I think maybe we were supposed to do it earlier and then it got pushed, but the magazines all do stuff two or three months out. Neither of us were prepared to do this photo shoot, let's put it that way. And, actually, this was kinda right before the huge entourage came..." - Charles Peterson

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Charles Peterson is an American photographer well known for his work with the Seattle independent record label Sub Pop and for capturing the then-newly emerging grunge scene in images. His photos are presented in the movie "Kurt Cobain: About a Son."

Peterson is known for depicting the rise of the Pacific Northwest underground music scene in the late 1980s to early 1990s. Visually, he is known for his trademark full-frame, non-cropped images. Reviews about his work include the following, "Peterson is known for his action-packed, sometimes partially blurred black-and-white shots taken with a wide-angle lens.

Peterson said, "The Seattle audiences were entertaining. I didn't want to just get a head shot of the lead singer. I wanted to get the experience, make you actually feel like you're there. ... I like the composition part of shooting. The way my eyes and brain work together -- I'm constantly composing with or without a camera."
