Chris Cornell is the subject of the latest NFT sale, which will feature never-before-seen images from the final photoshoot of the late singer.

Per Rolling Stone, “‘The Last Session’ NFTs were taken from a photoshoot Cornell did with photographer Randall Slavin in 2017, not long before his death by suicide on May 18th of that year. Following Cornell’s death, Slavin decided to shelve the photographs until deciding to mint them as NFTs with the blessing of Cornell’s widow, Vicky Cornell.”

A portion of the sales of the NFTs will benefit Phoenix House, a non-profit rehab organization with locations in nine states and Washington, D.C.

Vicky said in a statement on the NFT sale, “Randall is like family. I’m so grateful that Chris’s last photoshoot was captured by not only an amazing photographer but a true friend. Phoenix House continues to do such crucial work especially during these times.”

Two different NFTs will be auctioned off beginning today (August 5) via Cryptograph: One is titled Until We Disappear, and the other is called White Roses For My Soul To Keep.

Both NFTs can be previewed in the links above.
