White was a founding member of the Photo-Secession, a friend of Alfred Stieglitz, and a highly praised contributor to photographic exhibitions at home and abroad at the turn of the century. In 1906 he moved his family to New York City and left behind the small Ohio town of Newark, where he had worked as a grocery store bookkeeper. This ingratiating vision of youthful feminine grace demonstrates White's ability to find sentiment even in the commonplace and is likely one of his last photographs made in the Midwest. As such it 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.
