Kurt Cobain's 'The Last Session' Photoshoot Will Be Sold as NFTs

The photoshoot took place just a few months before Cobain’s death in 1994.

Photographer Jesse Frohman has officially released Kurt Cobain‘s The Last Session photoshoot, expected to sell them as non-fungible tokens.

Earlier this week, Frohman launched a website to auction off more than 100 photos from that day as an NFT. A portion of the proceeds from the sale will be going to the JED Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises awareness of emotional and mental health and preventing suicide for teens and young adults across the nation.

A description from the website stated, “‘The Last Session’ NFT collection includes images, polaroids, and contact sheets with Frohman’s original markups, some of which have never before been seen. The landmark NFT release offers those who celebrate Kurt’s legacy a chance to share ownership of a moment that is etched deeply upon the soul of music and culture.”

Frohman said to the Rolling Stone, “I wanted to do something that other people hadn’t done before. It’s something so special that won’t be offered again.”

The starting bid for the one-of-one holy grail equates to roughly $72,000 USD while other options including the “Nevermind Editions” which include 10 one-of-one begin at approximately $7,000 USD. The “In Utero Editions” are available to purchase outright with a “buy it now” price of approximately $2,600 USD.

The auction begins on May 3 at 5 a.m. BST until May 7 at 11 p.m. BST online at NFT Jesse Forhman.
