Dash snow was a funky dude , born into a family that included his aunt Uma Thurman , he could have enjoyed a typical lush lifestyle but instead ran away from home as a kid and began taking strange photos using shitty cameras of the shitty side of the New York lifestyle . He took sometimes damning shots of atrfarts behaving very badly and sometimes engaged in the behaviour himself , photgged for posterity. He was a gifted weirdo and even used his own splooge as part of an artwork series. But much as his life imitated his art , he dies from an overdose yesterday .
When will people ever learn?
That said , now that he's a goner at just 27 , his art will be worth more than it was during his short life . Such a shame for his family and young child , but sometimes you become consumed by your own selfish addicitons . Dying of a heroin overdose when you have a 2 year-old is just as severe and selfish in my mind as taking a gun to your head.
Suicide by any other name is still the same.
