Rolling Stone

The most famous - and the last of the professional - a picture of John Lennon made five hours before his death. Author picture - the most demanded female photographer Annie Leibovitz. This image and others like it - under the cut.

When the December 8, 1980 Annie Lennon photographed for the cover of Rolling Stone, a long time could not get a picture. Lennon insisted that his wife Yoko, too, was with him on the cover. Then Annie Lennon asked to undress and hug his wife.

Yoko asked if she should remove at least the top of the clothes, and I said - no, it is not necessary, even without understanding exactly how the picture should be. When John put his arm around her, it looked amazingly strong. It looked as if she was cold and it warms her. The first test for Polaroid has delighted them both. John said: "In this frame you showed our relationship exactly as they are. Promise me that he will be on the cover. " I looked into his eyes and realized that the deal was accomplished.
Rolling Stone issued a room with this cover January 22, 1981. Twenty-three years later, the cover has been recognized as the best magazine cover in 40 years.
