In 1991 after photographer Kirk Weddle shot the ‘baby reaching for a dollar’ album art, he met with Nirvana at a closed swimming pool in LA to shoot some similar-looking promo shots for the LP.
“After shooting the album cover, we stupidly shot the band at 10:00 in the morning while they were on tour,” he says. “You don’t really want to shoot a band in the morning. It was a tough day, cloudy, and Kurt was nowhere to be found. Two hours go by and he’s not around. When he finally shows up, he just lies down and sleeps for a couple hours. Flat on the pavement. We put a bathrobe on him and took some pictures.”
