Photographed at my family's furniture manufacturing company.

My great grandfather started the company in 1932. In 1960 he passed away and left the company to my father, who was 5 at the time and his three brothers, ages 1, 7 and 9. My grandfather ran the buisness until 1975 when my father and his oldest two brothers took over. My father is the current owner and my brother works right along side him in preparation of becoming the 4th generation owner. The employees are just as much a part of our family, some have worked here for over 40 years. For the past three decades a security guard named Elroy has collected the ID badges of deceased employees. He takes the photographs for the badges with a Polaroid/Laminix Photo ID Camera. It takes 4 separate photographs on 1 sheet of polaroid 669 film. After the employee selects the photo they want for their plant id, Elroy takes the photograph with the remaining three shots on it and files it away only to be found again at the time of the employees death when he then makes another name tag for them to hang on the wall.
