This ingratiating vision of youthful feminine grace demonstrates White’s ability to find sentiment even in the commonplace. Made shortly before moving his family to New York City, the photograph reveals a vision nurtured by and dependent on the time-honored customs and values of small-town life, far from the modern urban world he was about to embrace.
