Previously unseen photographs of late musician Jeff Buckley will go on display in Australia to mark the 20th anniversary of his first and only album, Grace.

The pictures were taken by photographer Merri Cyr, who struck up a friendship with the singer/songwriter on a photo shoot in the early 1990s and subsequently witnessed his rise to fame.

Cyr most notably took the picture that would become the cover of the 1994 album and frequently documented Buckley and his band on tour.

The collection will go on display in Sydney from Saturday (23Aug14).

Buckley died in 1997, aged 30.
