Hospice is health care that provides for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of dying patients, its goal is not to cure, but to ease the patient's passage out of life. However, many Americans are unaware of the choices hospice offers. In an effort to foster a broader understanding of hospice, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the National Hospice Foundation created this remarkable book, "Hospice: a Photographic Inquiry".
They commissioned a series of visual essays from five well-known photographers, challenging each of them to express through his or her art the essence of hospice care. The resulting book is an extraordinary document: it draws the reader inside the full intensity and revelation of the hospice experience.
