14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Absence of Issue

When photographing children, they are often on the move from one thing to the next. This is a rare moment of stillness and reflection. We see this child with a lipstick mark on her belly, a look of contentment in her eyes that, for a brief moment, are staring back into the lens with a wisdom beyond her years.
