Here we are now, picture-frame us.

An exhibition of previously-unseen Nirvana photographs is about to open in Texas.

Modern Rocks Gallery, in Austin, is preparing to show some 25-year-old snaps of Kurt and co. taking a dip in a swimming pool.

The pictures were taken by Austin-based photographer Kirk Weddle in October 1991. Weddle had shot the infamous Nevermind cover image a few months previously, but in the wake of the album's runaway success, some extra promo shots were needed.

Weddle tells the Modern Rocks Gallery site, ""I remember Kurt was like, 'Fuck! I have to get in the pool?' He was not a water guy at all."

The images, some of which are used in the recent Cobain doc Montage of Heck, have been kept, unorganised, in Weddle's cupboard ever since.

Nirvana Nevermind Outtakes opens at Modern Rocks Gallery on 30 May and runs until 27 June.

You can have a sneak preview of the exhibition by taking a look below.

Limited edition prints, restricted to 50 of each portrait, are available to buy here, priced $360 (£230).
