Documenting your life ... and finally your own death!

This may have been posted at RFF previously but it's a fascinating article about a photographer and film maker who chose to document a very large part of his life daily with Polaroids ... and then finally his own demise when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. There is a link within the article to the entire collection of Polaroid images in chronological order. Jamie Livingston

This is a really interesting project, and one that Polaroids suited perfectly. Being instant, you could take a picture then immediately write a date on the back. It's also very sad when you understand the story.


A number of years ago, I met a photographer online named Richard Wanderman. We exchanged a few pleasant emails/messages through flickr, and I lost track of him. Early this year, I thought of him again, and found his flickr account's last images were of him in hospital. I immediately searched for him online and discovered that he lost his battle with cancer only a few months before. Apparently, he was a very active photographer and computer guy, and many people mourned his passing. Who knows how many other flickr accounts hold similar stories?

Famed photographer and cineast, Ed van der Elsken documented his dying days. The title of this piece is ''Bye''. Unfortunately, I cannot find it online. For an overview of van der Elsken's work have a look here: http://www.edvanderelsken.nl/?page=home&language=en
