Two months before Kurt Cobain’s suicide, Nirvana had been in Paris, and had posed in an unplanned photo shoot with photographer Youri Lenquette. Lenquette and Cobain were friends and the singer arrived at the studio with a gun, which he used as a prop in many of the photos.
Twenty years on, Lenquette is exhibiting all the photos from that session. Many have never been seen before.
Lenquette spoke to the BBC’s Alain Galès about a day that became part of rock’n’roll mythology.
