This is a touching and cleverly photorealist picture of the great American abolitionist, John Brown, who is going to the gallows for believing in the equality of all Americans, black and white. The image focusus on him stopping to kiss a black baby, and it is this loving gesture which holds our attention, not the distant noose.
