A collection of portraits of people permanently at rest. "Schäfer's meditation might be quiet, but it still has the power to disturb us. While some his subjects look as if they are merely asleep, and having pleasant dreams at that, others look very dead, and also very troubled. As Schäfer undoubtedly intends, we cannot help projecting our own thoughts and fears on these post-mortem portraits - on the final moment that awaits us all." (Gerry Badger)
