In an intimate photographic documentary, this Central Floridian captures tragedy and triumph in her home and family life. Documentary Photographer Cynthia Slaughter will be speaking about her exhibition during her Gallery Talk at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center.
 

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.

Cynthia B. 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 33 years of memories were wiped away and her home was deemed unlivable by FEMA.

Additionally, Slaughter shares a deeply intimate documentary on her 94-year-old mother, Edna Pearl 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.

Cynthia B. Slaughter is a Studio Artist in documentary photography at Crealdé School of Art where she has studied since 2008 and participated in Crealdé documentaries including St. Augustine at 450 and The Lake: A Documentary Exploring the Land and People of Lake Apopka.

Gallery Tours will be carefully monitored by Heritage Center staff and will have a strict capacity of 10 people for 15 minutes. We expect visitors to be responsible by wearing masks and practicing social distancing. Time slots will be distributed upon arrival.
