Family Values in AnOther

Unseen Photos of Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love and Frances Bean at Home

“Three decades later, Hansen and Peacock are revisiting this fabled shoot for the first time in their new book, Family Values (powerHouse Books), an intimate chronicle of a young couple driven by passion and love that eschewed the trappings of fame and celebrity for truth and art. Through Guzman’s portraits, we see the last of a fading breed: the true rock star who spoke for outsiders, misfits and radicals who wanted nothing more than to live by their own rules.”

“Like Allan Tannenbaum’s portrait of John Lennon and Yoko Ono in bed for the cover of Double Fantasy, Guzman’s photographs of Cobain, Love and Frances have become emblematic of another kind of “family values”, which Cobain wrote across Love’s belly for the pièce de résistance. Though we know their stories soon turn to tragedy, they embody the spirit of the American Dream: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
