House a mile from the former steel mill at Sparrows Point, 2018. “The rise of heroin and fentanyl have led to rapid increases in overdose deaths in states like West Virginia, Ohio...and Pennsylvania.”-Vox, 2017
With my series, All for Thee This Day: The Fall of American Steel, I've been documenting the fall of Sparrow's Point as a steel town for over a decade. The people are tied to the landscape and the landscape tied to steel for over a century. With Trump's new tariffs, something Bush tried in 2002 to disastrous results, I've started to revisit the town and it's residents and retirees. This series is unpublished. "These are they who build thy houses, weave thy raiment, win thy wheat, smooth the rugged, fill the barren, turn bitter to sweet. All for thee this day? and ever. What reward for them is meet?"-Morris, March of the Workers.
