This portfolio contains a few images of a personal project I have been photographing over the years. I grew up in the funeral business and this body of work through lighting, gives a dynamic behind the scenes look. Daily Life in the Business of Death features 20 images published in The New York Times along with an interview by Pulitzer Prize Winner, Stella Kramer. Images from this series have also been featured in The New Yorker.
There is a deep and haunting beauty in Mr. Palmer’s work. It has a solemnity that compels us to look, and holds our gaze when we might want to turn away.
-Stella Kramer, The New York Times
