About London Birth of a Cult
So, over the past year Pete Doherty's life has epitomised the trajectory of a true rock În roll legend. Following a fraught departure from The Libertines, he has been vilified and cast as a scapegoat for conservative political posturing. A feeding frenzy of press coverage was precipitated by his dating Kate Moss, charges of robbery, blackmail, and carrying a knife, jail time, rehab, and also admissions that he had been a prostitute and drug dealer.
All of this overwhelms the most interesting aspect of the 26 year old musician's life. In a business dominated by manufactured mediocre talents, he is a true original, a charismatic frontman, songwriter, and performer. So the past two years of Doherty's life are captured here in photographs taken by Dior Homme fashion designer Hedi Slimane. His current band, Baby shambles, will release a new album in Summer 2005.
