This image comes from a larger body of work in which the artist depicted three young female friends in various settings in and around two houses, Francis Place and Mulberry Lodge. While conforming in some respects to the conventions of portraiture, the detached expression of the girl in this photograph, the lack of narrative content, and the contrast between her casual clothing and pose and the pristine interior of this upper-middle class home, create an unsettling effect.
