Patients, Nicholas Nixon

Nicholas Nixon photographed people with terminal or severe illness in hospitals around Boston for his series,Patients.”  He discusses the interactions with his subjects, their reactions to seeing their portraits and his initial interest in this delicate subject matter.

It’s a part of life we don’t get to see the face of very often. It’s moving, we’re all vulnerable—it’s something that’s looming over all of us. –Nicholas Nixon
