Posthumous photos of celebrities: specific earnings on idols of millionsPictolic
Celebrities whose fans are interested in the smallest details of their life do not cease to be of interest to fans even after death. Moreover, the last photo of a political leader, rock star or actor can be valued much higher than lifetime photos.
Newspapers, magazines and websites are happy to pay the owners of pictures a lot of money for photos of dead celebrities, of course, not official, but exclusive, taken at the place of death, in the morgue or at a funeral, but from an unusual angle. (Careful! Shocking photos).
Sometimes the funeral of a celebrity is made public to give everyone the opportunity to say goodbye to the deceased. In this case, only those photos that were taken before the official ceremony are highly appreciated. It also happens that the star herself or her family and friends do not want to arrange a mass event from the farewell, making the funeral closed. Then the photos can be especially highly appreciated by customers.
But photos taken at the scene of a natural death, murder or accident are the most popular product that can literally make the owner rich. It also happens that the author of the picture gets a lot of problems in addition to money, starting from the persecution of fans and ending with lawsuits from relatives of the star.
We do not touch on the moral aspect of the issue — this is a separate, rather extensive topic for conversation. If there is a buyer for a product, there will always be people who will offer it and there is nothing to do about it. We have selected photos of celebrities who have become public thanks to the persistence of fans, paparazzi, random witnesses and negligent law enforcement officers.
