Life Before Death

<  Life Before Death

That’s the name of a photo-essay currently running in The Guardian about a photography exhibition of the same name:

This sombre series of portraits taken of people before and after they had died is a challenging and poignant study. The work by German photographer Walter Schels and his partner Beate Lakotta, who recorded interviews with the subjects in their final days, reveals much about dying – and living. Life Before Death is at the Wellcome Collection from April 9-May 18

Peter Kelling, 64. First portrait taken: November 29 2003; second portrait taken: December 22 2003

The accompanying article is here, and is well worth the read.
