What is the last picture or Lennon? Preferably something more like a headshot. I think I got close with this:

If this is the one, is there a version without the text?

 

Thanks all! a-hard-days-night-john-5

Yoko used a picture of John after he had died in one of his music videos but i cant remember which one, im not going to post it. According to the Daily Mirror John Lennon (pic: Allan Tannenbaum)Image Enlarger

 the photo on the left is from the last photo session as taken by Allan ­Tannenbaum.

 

However its written elsewhere that Annie Leibovitz took photos 5 hours before John was murdered. Image Enlarger

comes from that session.

This one is certainly very similar to the one you posted Jackson but it looks to have very slight differences.

It's in the "Woman" video - the side photo of Lennon's head looking skyward (from the back cover of "Imagine") dissolves into a similar head shot taken posthumously, inside a casket. A fairly chilling transition.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

This would have been one of the last ones taken (from earlier in the day, but after the Annie Leibovitz shoot I think).

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8A good decision. 

God, I really hate that photograph. It gives me the creeps.
