Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Lori Waselchuk explores the humanity of the incarcerated through gripping photographs of Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola's new hospice program. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: Grace Before Dying tells the emotional story of an extraordinary breakthrough in humanity that has helped to transform one of the most dangerous maximum security prisons in the US, the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, into one of the least violent. Award-winning photographer Lori Waselchuk not only shows a culture of caring and compassion that challenges stereotypes of the incarcerated, but also provides an intimate and personal perspective on what long-term and life sentences signify from those inside. Includes an essay by prominent historian Lawrence N. Powell.
Dignity can be found at the end of life even in the most challenging of circumstances. Grace Before Dying shares the powerful story of a unique movement to care for the dying that is transforming lives within a correctional institution. Seeing violence replaced with empathy and compassion is an important lesson for everyone.”
J. Donald Schumacher, PsyD, President and CEO, National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization
"These are literally life-and-death matters Waselchuk is showing. Which makes all the more impressive the restraint with which she presents them."
Mark Feeny, The Boston Globe
"[Waselchuck's] black-and-white prints capture moments of delicate intimacy between dying patients and the volunteer inmates caring for them."
John Fichera, BU Today
