On August 28th 1991, exactly 28 years ago today, Jim Hutton took these photos of Freddie at Garden Lodge 📷…his last ever known photographs 😞 . “That summer Freddie posed for a camera for the very last time – mine. It happened like this. I was out in the garden photographing some of the flowers in full bloom and Freddie walked towards me. I trained the lens on – he wanted to move back a bit so it wasn’t a close-up. Then he posed while I took four pictures, and he managed a smile for each. He was so pale and drawn that he knew he didn’t look his best, but it didn’t matter a bit; of all the pictures I have of Freddie, those are the ones I love most.” -Jim Hutton . 👉P.S. Seeing these photos and reading those words by Jim always pains me beyond words… but I share them not to focus on his illness (please don’t do that) but to show how he always saw the beauty in every moment and his smile and bravery never waverd…. I love the fact that a cat (who looks like Oscar) is standing next to Freddie and I’d like to think he was having a good time amidst the bloom of the flowers of his beautiful garden…🌸 But most importantly, despite the sadness, I’m still in awe and admiration for Freddie and his superhuman courage to face life head on and muster a smile even through his hardest moments. His smile always stayed on and in that way he even mocked his illness. My hero…💪 This man is a source of inspiration on so many levels and I love him for that… ❤ . #FreddieMercury #lastphoto

El día de la fotografía, Freddie tenía 44 años, posó sin su famoso bigote, en el jardín de su casa.

En las imágenes Freddie posa junto a su gato Oscar, quien permaneció a lado del cantante hasta sus últimas horas de vida.

“Ese verano Freddie posó para una cámara por última vez, la mía. Sucedió así. Estaba en el jardín fotografiando algunas de las flores y Freddie caminó hacia mí”, palabras de Hutton que se leen en la publicación de la cuenta de Instagram de un club de fans.

💥Freddie’s Cats: Oscar💥 . 😻 Oscar came into Freddie’s life with one of his boyfriends Tony Bastin in 1979. And when the relationship was over Tony was out, but Oscar was to stay. 😁 . 😻 Oscar was a big ginger tom who, according to Peter Freestone, became “the tribe’s patriarch”. 🐈💪 . 😻 Freddie loved his cats so much that he commissioned paintings of every single one of them from Ann Ortman, one of which of Oscar he sent to be auctioned at one of the Queen fan conventions. . 😻 Oscar was a cat who preferred his own company 😎 so the continuing arrival of the feline youngsters to Garden Lodge turned out to intimidate and drive him away from the house. . 😻 The arrival of the latest kitten (I’ll talk about him in another separate post) proved to be the final straw as Oscar started to roam off to visit other homes in the area and adopted one neighbor. He even started sleeping out at night but Freddie didn’t mind. According to Jim Hutton Freddie would say: “If Oscar’s happy, then that’s all that matters.” 💛 . 👉P.S. Doesn’t it just amaze you and warm your heart to know that Freddie was such a selfless and nonpossessive man who always cared more about the happiness of others than his own EVEN when it came to his cats. Such a sweet and loving soul ❤❤❤ . #FreddieMercury #Oscar

“Quería que retrocediera, para que no fuera un primer plano. Luego posó mientras yo tomaba cuatro fotos, y sacó una sonrisa para cada una. Estaba tan pálido que sabía que no se veía lo mejor posible, pero no me importó; de todas las fotos que tengo de Freddie, esas son las que más amo“, dijo Jim Hutton.

Fue en 1987 cuando al cantante de “We will rock you”, le diagnosticaron VIH, luchó contra la enfermedad durante dos años e hizo la noticia pública 24 horas antes de morir.

Freddie intentó terminar la relación al enterarse que era portador de VIH, pero Jim Hutton le dijo que lo quería y que no iría a ningún sitio.

💥Jim the Spider Catcher💥 . “On many occasions, no sooner had Freddie gone to the bathroom to clean his teeth before bed than he’d come running out screaming. ‘Spider!’ he’d say. ‘You’ll have to get it out. I can’t do it.’ He was a bit of an arachnophobe: he hated spiders. I’d get up, catch the spider and pop it out of the window. Freddie didn’t like spiders, but he meant them no harm and would never ask me to kill one. He liked me to catch it in a glass or a box and throw it outside.” -Jim Hutton . 👉P.S. That’s the kind of married life I aspire to 😁 The idea of Freddie running out screaming ‘spider’ just kills me 😂 as Jim plays the hero 💪 But once again this story shows as adorably spoiled as Freddie was he had the biggest kindest most beautiful heart… not wanting to harm even a troublesome spider because he had that much respect and love for life and all living creatures ❤ . #FreddieMercury #JimHutton

Tras la muerte del músico, Jim regresó a Irlanda, su ciudad natal, donde vivió hasta que falleció a los 61 años en el 2010. Hutton escribió el libro “Mercury y yo” para aliviar todo el dolor que sentía.

Freddie Mercury le dejó la mansión Garden Lodge, que aparece en las fotografías, a Mary Austin, la mujer con la que vivió hasta revelar su homosexualidad.
