Lori Waselchuk's Grace Before Dying project focuses on people facing the end of their lives at Angola, Louisiana's state penitentiary. In documenting the prison's hospice program, which is run by incarcerated volunteers, Waselchuk not only shows a culture of caring and compassion that challenges stereotypes of incarcerated people, but also provides an intimate and personal perspective on what long-term and life sentences signify for those inside. An exhibition of her work, which is also being published by Umbrage Editions in June 2011, will be on exhibit at the Photographic Resource Center in Boston, May 17–July 10, 2011.
