First Edition, First Impresison
French fashion designer and photographer Hedi Slimane has produced a powerful record of the hedonistic Pete Doherty. It spans a turbulant period beginning from the time Doherty was expelled from The Libertines for his crack addiction to when he began work on his own project, the band Babyshambles. A kaleidoscopic collage of situations including unusual, intimate shots of Doherty in his bedroom to riotous scenes at London concerts, this is a first edition, first impression of a prolific, and infmaously scandalous, celebrity.
