Description

As a hospice nurse and photographer, Mary Landberg has the honor to witness and capture in photographs the unwavering expression of love that endures between people living with terminal illness and their loved ones. She has had the privilege of bringing her camera into a most sacred and vulnerable time in peoples lives. The great similarity in the dying process regardless of economic status, age, or any cause or place of death is the way people lovingly touch each other. Love is what survives beyond the last breath; love is all that is left in the end. This is what Landberg strives to photograph. What sets Enduring Love apart from other hospice photography books is that the primary focus is not on the faces of hospice patients, but on their hands. The mystery of who belongs to the hands allows the hands to belong to anyone in the reader's life, perhaps offering a sense of comfort or completion. Each photograph is accompanied by a story, grand wisdom hospice patients and families offer us the readers. The reader will also find honest glimpses into hospice care, common family struggles, light-hearted moments in the face of death and opportunities for healing on many levels.
