Dennis Rodman talks about his experiences meeting North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in an exclusive interview with New York writer Annette Witheridge.
Dennis is certainly a character, hyperactive and very entertaining……A nightmare to try and keep his attention though for the very limited time I had to photograph him…..!!
I had the pleasure of photographing Dr Sam Parnia who is a leading authority on Resucitation. Sam Parnia is a critical care doctor and director of resuscitation research at the Stony Brook University School of Medicine.
In his new book Erasing Death: The Science That Is Rewriting the Boundaries Between Life and Death, Parnia examines the experiences patients describe, but whereas much discussion around the experience of death has been philosophical or personal, Parnia is looking at the subject scientifically.
What happens when we die? We can’t bring people back from the dead to tell us — but in some cases, we almost can. Resuscitation medicine is now sometimes capable of reviving people after their heart has stopped beating and their brain has flat-lined; Dr. Sam Parnia studies what these people experience in that period after their heart stops and before they’re resuscitated. This includes visions such as bright lights and out-of-body experiences.
Often described as near-death experiences, Parnia prefers the term “after death.”
“What we study is not people who are near death We study people who have objectively died. … And therefore what we’ve understood is that the experience that these people have of going beyond the threshold of death, entering the period after death for the first few tens of minutes or hours of time, provides us with an indication of what we’re all likely to experience when we go through death.”
