Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison's grave, Père Lachaise Cemetery, Paris
Jim Morrison's grave, “ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ” (According to his own daemon)
Cimetière du Père-Lachaise (Père Lachaise Cemetery)
Boulevard de Ménilmontant, 20e arrondissement
Paris, July 2014

“Morrison’s grave has continually morphed and changed over the years, with a granite headstone and brass plaque replacing the crude bust and base that stood for the first decade and a half after Morrison’s death. Much of the graffiti that was there in the 1980s has been removed and a guard is installed there now to handle the large volume of crowds that come to visit the site on a daily basis.”
