In a day and age when news of tragedies and dramatic events are consumed by the next news sound bite, the power of still documentary photographs allows the public to slow down and enter more deeply into the lives of those affected by these events.
Location: Hannibal Square Heritage Center Visiting Exhibition Gallery
In this series of moving black and white photographs, Cynthia Slaughter shares a deeply intimate documentary on her 94-year-old mother, Etna Pearle Butler, a retired farmworker in the celery fields of Sanford, Florida, where she has been a resident since 1950. Her images chronicle her current life of devoted service to her faith, her family, and her local community.
Additionally, Slaughter invites viewers into her home in Orlando’s Orlovista neighborhood in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma in 2017. Slaughter tells the visual story of her life after 35 years of memories were wiped away and her home was deemed unlivable by FEMA.
Cynthia Slaughter is a Studio Artist in documentary photography at Crealdé School of Art where she has studied since 2010 and participated in Crealdé documentaries including St. Augustine at 450 and The Lake. She is mentored by documentary photographer and senior faculty member Peter Schreyer.
