“Stranger Fruit,” Jon Henry Photography,

Jon Henry’s Stranger Fruit series, named after the well-know song originally by Billie Holiday, was created in response to the murders of Black men across the US by police.

In Stranger Fruit, Henry photographs American mothers with their sons in a pieta-like arrangement, reenacting the pain for loss that is too common for Black families in the United States.
