Last photo

Has it been established who took the last official photo of Prince, and has it ever been published?

The one taken by Justine Walpole (where he looks rather gaunt) I believe is the last she took of him.

And I'm assuming she was his last official photographer??

Why would a photo that he didn't take be in his book?

Madison Dube took some photographs as well -one at the purple piano dated 4.13.16 and another of him sitting on a sofa at Paisley taken on February 12th.They are on her IG along with some others. instagram.com/lovemadisonxo She may have taken the last photo at the piano.

To my understanding, it's the one with Prince at the new yamaha piano (looks pink in the picture) with the redfox bandit art of prince throughout his career as the backdrop.

It was rumoured to have either been taken at Paisley just before Atlanta or in Atlanta itself.

Yes, I was under that impression also.

I also read somewhere that was his last official portait/photo, and it was taken at PP.

Read somewhere that the photo on prince.vault under the section "In Memoriam" was from his last photo shoot. He looks much better there than how he appears in the picture where he is sitting at the piano. There was also the picture that turned up from when he played at the Ray Charles Tribute in Minn. I have a picture - but do not know how to add it here.

This might be it. The front view of the final public Paisley Park appearance where he showed off his final guitar. The press only showed the back (I'd imagine purposefully, due to his gaunt appearance).

I meant official. Portrait.

My mistake. Totally missed the word "official" in your post.

In which photo does he look high as a kite? And what does that ‘look’ even look like? confused

I don't think he looks "high" here. Not saying he was or wasn't, just that it i don't see it. He actually looks good here. Relaxed, well-groomed, and more youthful appearing than that "official" portrait imo. Does anyone know where and when this photo was taken?

I cant figure when this photo was taken even doing a google reverse image search but I found that other photo that goes with it.

Was this taken by of the Twins? I know one of them had worked with Prince towards the end. I remember an interview where she said Prince asked her if she thought he was too skinny. So he was conscious about that.
