Courtney Love photographed by Phil Nicholls
Photoshoot: 12 August 1991
Location: London, UK
"Myself and writer Everett True were working with Courtney’s band Hole in Los Angeles during May 1991 and I was delighted to shoot this further session in London a few months later.
Low key, just the three of us present, Courtney, myself and Everett; shooting in Everett’s bedroom in North London, I stood on his bed, a black backdrop taped to the wall while Courtney manifested my ship’s figurehead vision; just an idea; she looked absolutely stunning and I shot just two rolls of film, one colour, one black & white. That was it, but, looking back at the contact sheets I'm happy with virtually every frame." Phil Nicholls
