Noted rock photographer Steve Gullick has shot many influential acts during his career -- his photos of Nirvana, Patti Smith, Sonic Youth, Jesus Lizard and more were displayed in the Punk As Fuck exhibit last winter -- and now he's about to release a Nirvana coffee table book. The 196 page Nirvana Diary is Gullick's photographic journey of Nirvana and includes reproductions of classic and previously unseen photographs of Nirvana shot from 1990 through 1994. Gullick reveals after hearing Nirvana's "Sliver" for the first time on the John Peel show in 1990 he made it his ambition to work with the band and in 1991 he got his wish:

"In August 1991 I was given the task of photographing the Reading Festival & returning with a tent based cover image, that’s the first time I shot Nirvana, Kurt was proudly wearing his Sounds t-shirt, I so wanted them on the cover of Melody Maker. But it was a dull day and those old inky music papers needed bright and vibrant images so it was a shot I took of Senseless Things on the sunny Saturday which made the cover. Remember, at this point, NOBODY had a clue how Nirvana were about to change music forever..."

Nirvana Diary is available through a crowdfunding campaign on Pledge Music (the book will be released once Gullick meets his funding goal). Those interested can pledge and find out more about the book here. Via Louder Than War.
