Pippa Wischer, a visual artist specialising in documentary portraiture, asked forty people receiving palliative care questions about life, dreams and dying. The Dreamers reveals their views on these deeper questions of life.
A book and an exhibition
The Dreamers is a beautiful book and also an exhibition.
Exhibitions have been held at the La Trobe Regional Gallery, Morwell, the Metro City Library, Melbourne, and at the Ballarat Foto Biennale.
We welcome inquiries to show this exhibition in community, corporate and public spaces. It helps us all to think about our mortality and to learn from their insights about what matters most in life.

“I love this book for its demonstrations of patience, courage and love. For those of us who have still to face the final passage, it is both transforming and reassuring.”
