While on a recent visit to Chicago, I photographed Benita Slaughter, owner of the Slaughter Mortuary, on the south side of Chicago. (A wonderful edition to my ongoing series of photographs on the Death care Industry)
The family business has been in existence for some 50 years. Her father, Bernard Slaughter, founded the Mortuary in the 60’s and was photographed alongside Bill Clinton and Mayor Daily to name but a few. The photo below was shot in Benita’s father’s office.
I was recently in New York for some meetings and had some time to check out the Bill Brandt exhibit at MoMA.
It was a real treat!
