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.

Steve Guttenberg practiced a man-on-man tango with Jonathan Roberts on Dancing with the Stars when Guttenberg’s partner Anna Trebunskaya fell ill. I’m glad she got better, but I’d rather see the man-tango on the show.
