The Dark Knight make-up  artist John Caglione Jr. has uploaded on this website some never before seen photos of Heath Ledger as The Joker on the set of the Batman movie. These behind-the-scenes glimpses actually include one photograph from Ledger’s last day on The Dark Knight set.

I love these little windows into what it must have been like on the set of this movie, crafting this masterpiece for the masses that has become one of the most popular films of all time. Ledger would of course go on to give his greatest ever performance in The Dark Knight before he was taken away from us too young and its sad to consider what performances we may have seen from him by now if he had lived.

John Caglione Jr’s great work was also recognised with an Academy Award nomination.

Enjoy these moments of Ledger in between what would become his legendary Oscar nominated performance.
