Kurt Cobain's Final Photo Session Surfaces
Images from Kurt Cobain's final photo session are currently being shown at a Gallery in Paris, Galeforce Television reports. The images were part of an unplanned session, taken by photographer Youri Lenquette two months before Cobain died.

Ominously, many of the shots feature Cobain posing with a gun, a prop which the Nirvana frontman had brought to the photo shoot. Speaking about the shoot, Lenquette notes that it was the normally camera shy Cobain's idea, something which took the photographer by surprise:

"This very last session happened in a very unplanned way. In February '94 they [Nirvana] were in Paris a lot, and Kurt came over here to spend the afternoon playing guitar, listening to music and hanging around. One afternoon, he told me 'tonight, let's do a photo session.' I was really surprised because when I was in Seattle in '93, he was using the fact that we were friends to avoid doing photos. I was surprised when he asked for it, and absolutely not prepared."

The exhibition, titled "Kurt Cobain: The Last Shooting," is on at the Addict Galerie in Paris from 25th March to 21st June 2014.
