Relive your grunge days (or discover them for the first time) through 80 photographs by Charles Peterson and Michael Lavine, famed photographers who followed the legendary Nirvana founder-frontman through to his final days. The undisputed hero of the Grunge era continues to have a communicative effect, even twenty-six years after his death. The photographs at Palazzo Medici Riccardi also document American counterculture of the '90s, the time following the Cold War and preceding the New Economy. Other players on the Grunge scene also feature with Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Mudhoney alongside Cobain and his wife Courtney Love, symbols of an era.
