Jim Morrison Last Photos From Paris???

Two photos are floating around the internet that claim to be the last known photos of a living Jim MorrisonMorrison died on July 3, 1971.

Jim Morrison flew to Paris in March 1971, took up residence in a rented apartment, and went for long walks through the city, admiring the city’s architecture. During that time, Morrison grew a beard. The ghostly shot captures him staring out of the window of the apartment where he would eventually die and is believed to be one of the last photographs taken of him and shows him sporting the beard.


The Polaroid photo above was auctioned along with his last notebook of poetry.

This photo also shows up as Jim’s last photos.  There were a series of photos taken on June 28, 1971 with his girlfriend Pamela Courson by Alain Ronay. These photos from a village near Chantilly taken a few days before Jim died.  He’s pretty clean shaven in these.

This photo from the bootleg recording,  Jim Morrison – The Lost Paris Tapes looks kinda freaky with the kid in the window.


These also claim to be some of the last photos of Jim.  You be the judge or help feelnumb.com out.

    WOW ! I have not seen a few of these,wish I had known them both, such a sad loss, they are missed.

  2. That guy with the brown long hair talking to Jim is a journalist who wrote a book about their brief meeting. I don't know if there is an English translation of it. But the journalist was clearly impressed.

    these have all been seen widely and are authentic to jim's last days in paris.  the last two are photos with herve mulller(sp?), a french journalist that is indeed in the last photo above with jim. pam is cropped out but stands to jim's left in the original photo. photo previous to last is taken at an outdoor table at a parisian cafe with a group including herve….jim is shown during a drinking lunch  shortly before his death.

    There's been some discussion on that bearded Morrison staring at the window photo. It his him clearly, but, was not taken during his last months in Paris. It was most probably taken in 1969. During his last months he never grew a beard, that's a fact, he actually shaved his beard on the plane during the trip from L.A to Paris. Also if you notice his hair is not as long as it was on the real last known photos (the same ones featured here) so, yeah, is definitely not Paris 1971 -could be Paris or some other location in France but 1969 or 1970 though, as he visited France during that period before moving.
