Life Before Death: Photography of the departed

Taking portraits, easy. What about taking portraits before and after 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.”

If you check out this article from guardian.co.uk, you’ll find the two portraits of all of the subjects were taken within a month. It’s strange how they can be so different within a month, being alive and being dead.

Life Before Death is at the Wellcome Collection from April 9 to May 18.

Just came across these today and it would be a crime if I don’t share them. Not only the colour contrast and lighting is amazing, we get a hot guy getting wet wearing nothing but his swim suit. Is there a better way to get ready for Spring/Summer 08?
