Dash Snow Dies of a Drug Overdose
Tuesday, July 14, 2009
Dash Snow died yesterday of a drug overdose. While not particularly surprising, this is very sad - not only the ultimate NY coolkid, he took great photographs and came (is that the correct past tense for cum?) on newspaper clippings about corrupt policeman.
"Ultimately, [his work] also serves as a sad marker of that life's short trajectory. “When it comes down to it, Dash is wild, a wild kid,” [Ryan] McGinley told Levy in the New York article. “...[F]or me, it’s always sort of about creating a fantasy. It’s, like, the life I wish that I was living. For Dash, it’s really the life.” (from The L Magazine obituary)
At least he died at 27, like Kurt Cobain, and other pretty, dead famous people.
