Re: Fair use - not infringement or theft.

A direct quote should be attributed - if you copy the text of an article without quotes/footnote, etc., that's potentially plagiarism.  But using an image to illustrate an academic paper is not theft, not an infringement.  It's clearly covered in several references already provided.

Yes, there is a place for providing references or acknowledgements  - this isn't it.  The child isn't claiming to be  the photographer and very few people will be confused by that.
