Overview

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. 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.
