    Final Photoshoot of Chris Cornell Will Be Sold as NFTs

    The sale of NFTs will start tomorrow, August 5, at 12 am ET via Cryptograph, a publishing and auction platform of digital creations. According to its website, the proceeds from the auction will partly go to Phoenix House.

    Back in 2017, before committing suicide, Chris Cornell, previously the lead singer of rock band Soundgarden had a photoshoot with photographer Randall Slavin. Now, two of these photos with Chris Cornell will be auctioned as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

    The photoshoot had the title “The Last Session”. The photos that will become NFTs are named “Until We Disappear” and “White Roses For My Soul To Keep”. Notably, before deciding to auction them, the photographer Randall Slavin got approval from Cornell’s widow, Vicky Cornell.

    Randall Slavin stated:

    “Chris was a powerful, beautiful person and someone I was fortunate to work and I’m very excited to immortalize these images as NFTs.”

    “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,” said Vicky Cornell.

    The sale of NFTs will start tomorrow, August 5, at 12 am ET via Cryptograph, a publishing and auction platform of digital creations. According to its website, the proceeds from the auction will partly go to Phoenix House, a non-profit organization that offers rehabilitation programs for drugs and alcohol addiction.

    It states:

    “When Chris arrived at Randall’s studio in 2017, no one knew that this momentous shoot would be his last. After his passing, Randall decided to shelve the photos for years. But at long last, the time has come to unveil this historic session and breathe new life into these stunningly palpable photographs — forever immortalizing the legacy of a bona fide Legend.”

    Chris Cornell was an American singer, songwriter, and musician. He was the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for such rock bands as Soundgarden and Audioslave. Besides, he had a successful solo career. In 1990s, Cornell was one of the key figures in the grunge movement.

    Currently, you can hardly find a person who have never heard the term “NFTs”. The phenomenon is gaining popularity, catching the attraction of different industries. Over the last few months, NFTs’ sales brought millions of dollars. Due to the fact that each token is unique, NFTs democratize the control of the content. Besides, they bring authenticity and security with the use of blockchain.

    Recently, we reported that Mike Novogratz, the CEO of Galaxy Investment Partners, shared his support for NFTs. In an episode of Next with Novo podcast, he spoke on cryptos and NFTs with Devang Thakkar from the Christie’s Art + Tech Summit. The main idea regarding the NFTs was that NFTs are the future of art and tech.
