This is a photograph of a black woman and a white child, seated on her lap. This photo is in black and white. The pattern and the movement in the child's clothing is shown. The emphasis of the photograph is in the woman's clothing. Here, her breasts are exposed. The dress that she's wearing provides easy access, almost as if she's wearing a maternity dress. The point of this woman's role, other than tending to the child was clearly to breast feed him as well.
