It has been almost one month since the tragic death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust.” Ahead of tribute service to her, her husband has shared a photo of her headstone with the media.

As has been previously reported Hutchins was behind the camera when actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun in the direction of the camera. He believed the gun was safe to do so. And had been told that the gun was “cold.” Tragically, that was not the case. Hutchins was shot in the abdomen. She died from her injuries on Oct. 21.

Hutchins left behind her husband, Matt, her 9-year-old son, and many other loved ones. Now they are planning to pay tribute to her with a private ceremony, according to Fox News. Hutchins has reportedly been cremated and her ashes will be interred.

The headstone image shared by the late cinematographer’s husband is black. It has “Halyna Hutchins, ASC, 1979-2021” engraved on it. It also has a movie camera and a segment of film adorning it. There is also a tribute to her engraved at the bottom. It reads, “Her light shapes our lives, keep chasing your vision,” according to PEOPLE.

The private ceremony to honor the late cinematographer will reportedly be held this weekend.
