Life Before Death

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.

Before I even venture to click on this link (my finger is twitching)...

Mac, what did this story say to you personally? What did you get out of it?

I've gone down these roads before but instead of finding solace and acceptance in the inevitable, it really just scared the shit out of me. BUT bend to the backwards logic of primitive religion out of that fear I will not ;)

Quite honestly, I thought the photo collection was excruciatingly poignant and strangely beautiful. I didn't link to it to be spooky or morbid.
