A black-and-white digital photograph by Devin Allen of an unidentified uniformed female police officer holding a child in Baltimore, Maryland. The officer looks and smiles at the child, who is looking off frame to the left. The child wears a light-colored shirt and pants. Another officer, with her back facing the camera and standing in the left foreground, reaches her hand out toward the child. Other people out of focus stand or sit in the background.
