Evelyn McHale

Best of Death Gallery – MovieBook

A May Day suicide in New York City. Evelyn McHale jumped from the top of the Empire State Building and landed on her back on top of a U.N. Limo.

Her face was untouched. This photo captured her in an amazing position with her legs crossed and her hands frozen in a clasp on her pearl necklace.

Definitely a death photo that is art.

One of the most famous suicide photos in history.

Published by Life Magazine in 1947.

Artists like Andy Warhol have done works about it.
