Little Police, Scottsboro, Alabama 1974


15 1/2 x 15 1/2 gelatin silver print on 16 x 20 sheet.

Beginning in the 1970s, Solomon spent 25 years documenting how white and black southern American identities shape and contrast against one another. This image represents a particular fixation on the workings of southern law enforcement, and provides a striking image of a white child already emblazoned with symbols of authoritative power.

There is a small, less-than one-inch crinkle that doesn’t break the surface on the lower left of the image.

Signed and dated in pencil on verso.
