Last Words of Edward Abbey // Chromogenic Photographic Print

I became interested in last words after reading William B. Brahms’ Last Words of Notable People (2010). They are as multifarious as the people who spoke them: at times disappointing (Oscar Wilde died unable to speak), often humorous (W. C. Fields: God damn the whole friggin’ world and everyone in it but you, Carlotta), and consistently poignant (Ernest Hemingway: Good night my kitten). Every species that ever does will do something conclusive, and every person who speaks for the first time will say something for the last time. I aim to support critical thinking about lasts and encourage curiosity about ephemerality.

These are the last words of American author and noted environmentalist Edward Abbey (1927-1989).

This listing is for an 8" x 10" matte chromogenic photographic print.

Brahms, William. Last Words of Notable People. Haddonfield, NJ: Reference Desk, 2010. p. 1. Print.
