David Bowie’s Last Photo Shoot Before His Death

This is how you want to be remembered: David Bowie’s last photoshoot, done to promote his new album Blackstar, show the star dressed in a black fedora hat and suit and wearing a confident smile. The suit comes from fashion designer Thom Browne, and the photo was taken by Jimmy King. Bowie was last pictured in public at the opening for the musical Lazarus in New York on December 7.

“That’s the message that I sent,” says Bowie’s website where the photos were released. “Why is this man so happy? Is it because it‘s his 69th birthday or that he has released his 28th studio album today and it’s a corker? Who knows, but we’re sure you’ll want to join us in congratulating him on both. Many happy returns of the day to David Bowie and Blackstar.”

How to know you're great even exceptional. Smile, be happy about life. We knew a fraction of what was on Bowie’s shoulders. Yet before anything he smiled. In my opinion, that is what separates great people from the rest.

despite what was going on with him, he chose a splendid, gallant manner of leaving, here, as well in his last video, may he most surely rest in peace
