Portraits before and after death.

"This somber 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."

The photos are both haunting and beautiful. Death is not an end to life, but rather the end of your placement test for eternity. Make sure to read the comments below the photos. What do you think?
