“Months To Live”

Prison hospice

Comforting a Death in Prison” is a powerful NYT audio slideshow, stark in black-and-white, about fellow inmates who volunteer for hospice duty with dying prisoners. The text story, “Fellow Inmates Ease the Pain of Dying in Jail,” is good but is made so much richer by the slideshow. A good example of how multimedia can help us tell fuller, more meaningful stories.

  1. This was amazing! Those photos were beautiful, and the commentary went along perfectly. Photos can be really powerful when they go along with a story like that. This story really reminded me of that one we read for the story structure exercise. It was sad, but I enjoyed it. Thanks for posting that.
