The Purple Brown Grey White Black photo series is an extremely poignant, touching and tough photo series, captured by a German photographer named Daniel Schumann, that documents people living in hospices who are nearing the end of their lives.

Not only did Schumann capture the photos of patients, he even took photos of some of them after they died. In fact, he was present the deaths of seven of the people pictured in the Purple Brown Grey White Black photo series. Schumann says photographing the individuals after their death was a way of driving home the fact that they had passed on, as well as a way of accepting death and saying farewell.

Ultimately, the Purple Brown Grey White Black photo series makes for difficult but important viewing, as it shows that life is like when one is close to death.
