Lori Waselchuk: Grace Before Dying

May 17 - July 10, 2011
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston.

Satellite Exhibit of Grace Before Dying
: June 1-30,
Concord Public Library, Concord, MA



Calvin Dumas helps turn George Alexander in his bed, Angola State Prison, Louisiana.

Lori Waselchuk is a photographer based in Philadelphia, but she has a special level of dedication to people in the state of Louisiana. Her work in Grace Before Dying concentrates on a prisoner-run hospice program at Louisiana State Penitentiary located in Angola. The prison has a large percentage of inmates serving life sentences; nearly three-quarters of its 5,000 residents will leave the prison only upon their deaths. Waselchuk gained unique access to a program that has transformed lives. Her panoramic black-and-white prints record the heightened sensitivities that this ground-breaking program has instilled in a very tough world.
