Photograph by Don Henderson.

Digital photograph of Fannie Sellins' grave in New Kensington, 8x10" glossy.

On August 25th 2912,  went out to shoot some fog photos. My first choice was to go down to the New Kensington Bridge and shoot, but after snapping a few shot of the former New Ken Steel company buildings, something drew me to shoot at the Tarentum Bridge, so I headed up Freeport Road past the old ALCOA Labs and decided to stop and shoot a few photos at Union Cemetery. There in the thick fog I found the grave of Fannie Sellins, a labor organizer for the United Mine Workers, who was brutally murdered on August 26th 1919 while picketing near a coal mine in Brackenridge. August 26th 2023 marks the 104th anniverasary of her murder by sheriff's deputies and coal company thugs. 

Printed from an Epson Expression XP-15000 printer using Claria Hi-Definition Ink on a 8.5x11" Epson glossy digital photo paper.

Mailed in flat, rigid envelopes to prevent damage or curling, and are ready to frame.
