Visit to the hospice: The people who stare death in the eye and say

Andrew George lives in Los Angeles, won for his photographs of numerous awards and has often been published. In 2014, he ventured to a topic that we displace all: death. George was interested in what people think, the knowledge that you don't have much time to live. Most easily you can find these in a hospice, in the place to help sick people for the last few days. George has asked, what in life is actually relevant. What will we appreciate value, if it is for us once so far? We learn from our parents, the social environment, or life itself, what is really important? Andrew George is of the view that we in the Western world, the death as well as possible to hide. Instead, he believes, we should be aware, however, that all will disappear, we attach the greatest importance, for once.

The photographer has photographed over a period of two years, people in the hospice. He has made you interviewed and in addition to shots of you also what are the small, hand-written letters, in which the Dying have their feelings expressed. "Some have felt safe to talk about it, others wanted to write it down dear", he explains on his Website. "Some of us will have the greatness to overcome the fear of mortality and the uncertain journey brave to compete," he says after his visit in the facility for the dying.

What really matters

Through his Interviews, George has found that, although all of the Die have very different personal views, but some things but also very similar. Despite the heterogeneous backgrounds, there were two things that were the people often unimportant, to tell him about it: their previous occupations, and your condition or the disease you are going to die. George decided not to mention this information in his portraits.

"Right before I die" was shown in 2015 in the Musea Brugge and may also come to Germany. The photographs in the exhibition have been published as a book, and this Link can be ordered.
