Morgue Photographer


Saturday, November 20, 2004

Artist Thomas Condon got permission from officials in Cincinnati to take pictures of corpses at the morgue for a personal project. It never occurred to him to get permission from the surviving families of the dead. In the town still shaken by the Robert Mapplethorpe controversy over a decade ago, Condon found himself on trial and eventually in jail. Produced by Tamar Brott.
