Management for Lou Reed on Tuesday shared the final photo taken of the rock icon. Along with the picture was a message from Reed's manager, Tom Sarig.

“Just a couple of weeks ago Lou did a photo session intended to become a print ad for his friend Henri Seydoux’s French audio headphones company Parrot. The renowned photographer Jean Baptiste Mondino took the shots, and this was the very last shot he took. Always a tower of strength.”

Reed was born on March 2, 1942, and he died on Oct. 27, 2013.
