As one of the leading rock photographers of his generation, Steve Gullick’s portfolio includes a host of legendary artists – Nick Cave, The Prodigy, Patti Smith, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters and many more – but it’s his photos of Nirvana that have served as some of the most iconic and long lasting.
Now Gullick has teamed up with direct-to-fan site PledgeMusic for the publication of The Nirvana Diary – the definitive photo book charting an era that redefined rock music.
As Gullick explains: “The NIRVANA diary is a photographic journey through my work with Nirvana & their contemporaries – Jesus Lizard, Mudhoney, Melvins, Screaming Trees, Soundgarden etc – from my first Sounds commission in February 1990 to a session with Eddie Vedder just after Kurt’s death.”
This 196 page coffee table book contains stunning reproductions of classic as well as unseen photographs accompanied with Gullick’s recollections and a foreword by one of the UK’s leading authorities on Nirvana – Everett True.
By utilizing PledgeMusic’s direct-to-fan platform, Gullick can offer fans the opportunity to help realize the book in a variety of innovative ways. One hundred signed copies of the book and limited edition postcard sets are some of the items available to Pledgers via pledgemusic.com/projects/nirvanadiary.
