“Last Rides”: Photographer Takes Pictures Of The Roads Where Stars Died In Car Crashes

James Dean, Grace Kelly, Marc Bolan, Albert Camus… Christophe Rihet photographs the roads where famous people died, shooting at dawn or dusk to bring a sense of calm. Captions by Camille Riquier.

James Dean, Route 46 in California, 30 September 1955

Christoph Rihet

When James Dean, at the wheel of his Porsche, notices a car in the distance, he reassures his passenger: ‘He has seen us, he will stop.’ But the driver of the Ford Tudor hasn’t seen anything, because his vehicle is very high. Dean cannot avoid the collision. His passenger survives, but Dean’s feet are stuck under the pedals and his neck is broken upon impact.

After performing in a cabaret in Biloxi, Mansfield is driven by Ronnie Harrison, with his friend Sam Brody, to New Orleans. In the back, three children sleep soundly. At around 2am, insecticide sprayed from a tractor severely hampers visibility and Harrison drives the Buick at speed into the back of a lorry. The three adults die on the spot.
