Famous people often become important parts of our lives whether we like it or not. We blast their music, watch and subsequently rewatch their movies, admire their work for society, and even obsess over their day-to-day lives with reality shows like Keeping Up With The Kardashians. That’s what makes it even sadder when one of our favorite celebrities passes away, sometimes tragically.
Looking at the last photographs taken of these celebrities is often spooky and surreal as we witness one of their last moments on this earth. At the time, it would seem like any other ordinary picture, but it’s made all the more meaningful later.
There are some very famous photographs taken of celebrities before they passed away, including Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Jim Morrison, and more. Without further ado, let’s look into some of the most poignant final photos taken of these celebs while they were alive. Some of them are sure to hit you right in the feels!
One Of The Best Songwriters Of Our Generation
The world still feels John Lennon’s presence in so many ways. Whether it’s his amazing musical works including the inspired “Imagine” or his views on human rights and life in general, Lennon had a huge impact on the world while he was alive.
This photograph is powerful for a number of reasons. Not only was it taken a few hours before Lennon was murdered, but the man he’s signing an autograph for, Mark David Chapman, was actually the man who committed the murder. Only 40 years old when he died, we can only imagine the number of great things Lennon would have done had he been alive all these years.
Lennon’s photo was taken years ago, but click the next slide for a more recent “final photo” of an actor who’s passing was a real shocker!
