Description
A black-and-white digital photograph by Devin Allen of an unidentified female police officer hugging an unidentified child in Baltimore, Maryland. The uniformed officer stands in the street behind the child, bending down to wrap her hands around the child, with her head resting on the child's right shoulder. She smiles and looks at the camera. The child wears a t-shirt with a printed design obscured by the officer's hands, and also smiles and looks at the camera. In the left background out of focus is another police officer looking at an object in his hands.
