More press coming in for Lori Waselchuk’s new monograph Grace Before Dying! Says The Midwest Book Review in a short but sweet review in The Social Issues Shelf section of their July 2011 issues of “Wisconsin Bookwatch” and online book review magazine:
A death with dignity can at times be something very difficult to acquire. Grace Before Dying is a work of black and white photography as Lori Waselchuk focuses on the infamous prison Angola and how the inmates and prison staff have launched ways to give these men a death that isn’t hollow and without meaning. A moving compilation of photography that catches much soul, an essay from Lawrence N. Powell drives the soul of the matter, and makes for a very educated read. Grace Before Dying is certainly a thoughtful read, a must for any socially active photography collection, highly recommended.
