I've had this picture on my hard drive for years, I don't know the name of the photographer, but the subject is, of course, Billie Holiday. The picture is entitled, "The Final Session". It was purportedly taken while Holiday was recording her last album, 'Lady in Satin'. Holiday was only 43 when this photo was taken...she died a year later in 1959 at the age of 44.
