Determined to improve the quality of life for a generation that’s already endured the Depression and World War II, Dr. Mark Nowaczynski has been photographing his elderly patients to raise awareness about this growing but hidden segment of the population. His black and white photographs reveal not only their vulnerabilities, but also their strength and courage as they struggle to maintain a sense of dignity at the end of their lives.
