Funeral Homes in Vermont on the Hey, Hot Shot! blog.
Vermont-based photographer Corey Hendrickson's current project is being featured on the Hey, Hot Shot! blog. The work focuses on funeral homes, which can be comforting and austere, a balance necessary to convey a sense of being able to mourn the deceased in a home-like environment. As a place of last respects and deep grief, the funeral home becomes an unwanted but ultimately unavoidable experience. Corey Hendrickson used his 35mm Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III to capture the reverent and functional staging of funeral homes across Vermont. The same body of work is also being considered as a Critical Mass finalist. One of the prints was also recently taken into the permanent collection at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado.
