Photographer Geoff Moore was given rare access to the vault containing Kurt’s intimate belongings.

Photographer Geoff Moore was given rare access to the vault containing Kurt’s intimate belongings.

As writer Charles R Cross prepared his celebrated visual autobiography Cobain Unseen, he arranged for photographer Geoff Moore to be given access to the hallowed Kurt archive.

For one day in 2007, Moore was invited into the high security art storage where Cobain’s most intimate possessions are kept away from prying eyes.

Now his images, which appear in Cobain Unseen, are on display for the first time at KM5 Gallery in Los Angeles.

Moore’s Endorsement show is named after the word Kurt scrawled across his favourite pair of Converse but each image reveals another detail about one of the most enigmatic artists of all time.
