The Girl Studies
Teen and Transgender Comparative Study #1 36 X 26.5 inches


In White's new photographs, the artist removes the tableaux that defined his prior projects and instead regards his subjects directly, without the mediation of sets, props, or narrative. Central to this new work is a group of five photographs titled Teen and Transgender Comparative Study, which parallels two puberties: one biological, the other chemical/surgical. Over the course of a year, White worked to identify teen and male-to-female transsexual subjects who, when viewed together, would create a visual bridge between female adolescence and male-to-female sexual transformation. In additional works such as Boy Posed and Girl Posed, White further maps the primacy of feminine identity and desire in the 21st century by mimicking portraits from teen magazines such as J-14, Pop Star, and Teen Beat. In these images, White isolates the gaze established for the female teen consumer and foregrounds the unacknowledged complications of this gaze as a product of adults."
