David Bowie’s final photographs | Consequence of Sound


On Friday, January 8th, the day David Bowie both celebrated his 69th birthday and put out his final studio album ★ (Blackstar), the musician’s official website released a new set of photos. Taken by his longtime photographer Jimmy King, they are believed to be the final images of Bowie. He died on Sunday evening.

(Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story suggested these photos were taken three days ago, but that is unconfirmed.)

According to an issued statement, Bowie passed away following an 18-month battle with cancer. Despite his illness, he remained active up until his death, appearing in public just last month to attend a staging of his off-Broadway adaptation of Lazarus. Last week he released  along with the all-too-surreal video for album track “Lazarus”.
