The Black Tears are a collection of images from Jerry’s book Renewal at The Place of Black Tears. Renewal was published on the 50th Anniversary of the USS Arizona Memorial (1962-2012). The Black Tears are the name the survivors of the Arizona gave to the oil droplets that have been bubbling up from sunken ship everyday for the past 71 years. These impressions of were discovered with the aide of a camera from the deck of the Memorial. They are moving to young and old alike – even healing for some.
