This link, http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/gallery/2008/mar/31/lifebeforedeath?picture=333325401,
leads to a series of photographic portraits taken of people before and after their deaths. There are brief quotes from the talks they had with the photographer about dying.
Some of them look so at peace. Some of them don't.
I didn't find it disturbing, but rather deeply affecting.
