13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Intervention in memory of Islan Nettles
This image is a sticker with a photo of Islan Nettles who was murdered on the street in Harlem. I opened a locker at the gym and saw this sticker there. I was struck by the memory of this killing, and by the tear on the sticker as a kind of erasing of the memory of Islan.
