The coordinates of the human have become a central topic of Daniel Schumann's photography ever since his civil service in a hospice. In his book ‘Purpur Braun Grau Weiß Schwarz’, people who are dying and their dealings with illness and death are the subject. For one year, Schumann accompanied, through his photographs, people who have lived and died in hospice. While for him, in many countries, death has become a taboo topic, he seeks to make death visible, with all the pain and suffering that fatal illnesses entail, but also with the certainty that a final farewell in dignity is possible. Next solo exhibition at China Pingyao International Photography Festival 2015 September 19th till 25th Pinyao, Shanxi, China and at the Indian Photography Festival 2015 October 1th till 10th in Hyderabad, India.
