The Final Event


Cindy Hegger specializes in end-of-life photography. She began this stage of her business after photographing activists working in Sacramento to pass what ultimately became California’s End of Life Option Act, a law that allows terminally ill residents to end their life with self-administered drugs. Cindy and her clients treat the end of one’s life just like any other major milestone — something that should be documented with photos and treasured. Her work — and the process of end of life photography, is featured in the latest issue of Alta Magazine. She joins Alta’s podcast to discuss her work and why her end of life photos aren’t sad, they’re joyful.
