Mortician Project phase 3.

Today I traveled to Pocatello Idaho to photograph a mortician named John Perkes. John, following in his fathers footsteps has worked in the mortuary business in some for or fashion since the age of 14. When asked as a kid what he wanted to do for a living John would always reply, "I want to drive a Hearse". He is currently the CFO of Colonial Mortuary. Johns passion lies in the business end of the mortuary business but that doesn't mean he's lacking in compassion for his clients in mourning.

  1. Great work, Chad. I've always wondered about this profession myself, and I'm sure it takes a very special person to see death day in and day out.
