The Last Session

The Last Session is a touching tribute to Nirvana, a band that litteraly shaped a generation. 
Frohman’s extraordinary photographs allow us to see Cobain as never before.

Who is Frohman ?
Jesse Frohman is a New York-based photographer. After graduating from the University of Michigan, he moved back to New York and assisted Irving Penn for four years. He began his career shooting for magazines such as Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone and Vogue. In addition to his portrait work, which features artists from every creative field, including countless celebrities, Frohman has also worked in the still life and landscape genres. 

Why this shooting ?
By July 1993, Nirvana were huge. In New York City to play the Roseland Ballroom and promote their new album In Utero, Nirvana consented to be photographed by Jesse Frohman. No one involved could know that less than a year later, Cobain would be dead of a self-inflicted gunshot.
It was one of the last photo shoots Nirvana ever did, and among the last interviews Cobain ever gave. 
We see Cobain as he was just months before his death, by turns feral and refined, alone and goofing around with his bandmates.
