Dont They Get It I'm Going To Die

Wow what a really powerful exhibition - I really wish I was in London to see this exhibition

Nothing teaches us more about life than death itself. Journalist Beate Lakotta and photographer Walter Schels asked 24 terminally ill people if they could accompany them during their last weeks and days. From these vigils came a series of insightful descriptions and photographic portraits taken before and after death.

For those of you lucky enough to be in London be sure to get down and check this out between 9th of April and 18th of May.

Wellcome Collection
183 Euston Road
London NW1 2BE, UK
+44 (0)20 7611 2222

For those of you not there check out this link with some samples.

I love some of the quotes that go along with these - really gets to the core of what it's about to be alive.
