See a selection of Heather Pillar's photographs:

In 1995, photographer Heather Pillar collaborated with Morrie Schwartz during the last six months of Morrie's struggle with ALS.   The project  illustrated Morrie's philosophies through photographs made of family, friends, caregivers, reaching out to community and self-care.

Over a quarter-century later, Morrie's wisdom resonates with many people around the world due to the best-selling memoir to date: Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom.

Morrie's warmth and vitality comes through in each photograph to illustrate love and loss; caregiving and self-care; family, friends and always community. 

Morrie taught people, including Heather - how to live fulfilling lives with love.  It is by facing fears of death that we learn how to live.
