"Mortician" Project phase two

Like most people, I've often wondered what drives a person to become a mortician. Having been one of those "left behind" by my loved ones, I've witnessed first-hand the comfort a mortician's work brings to those grieving. But what makes them want to get into the business in the first place? Well, for the amazing morticians at Memorial Mortuary in Murray, UT, they unanimously agreed that it was the drive to help make the whole process of death and grieving easier on the living.

Brandon Buningham considers his profession a calling, and I agree. I think you can see it in his eyes.

If you're wondering what made me start photographing morticians (and there are many more to come - keep your eyes peeled), check out Part 1 of this series.
