This photograph is from the series Inauguration, taken on the day that Barack Obama was sworn in as president. Shot in the midst of the revelatory crowds in Washington, DC, Opie singles out subjects caught in states of reflection. This image, of a woman and a young boy, documents a moment of calm amidst the frenzy of celebration.
