The subjects of this group portrait are Heather Brown, Mimi Brown, Bebe Brown Nixon, Laurie Brown (in order, left to right). The four women stand outdoors. Bebe and Laurie, the two on the right, are locked in an embrace. The frame is closely cropped, with only the face and upper torsos of the figures visible. The shallow depth of field and strong frontal illumination draws attention to the subjects' facial features and the texture of their clothing in contrast to the blurred foliage partially visible in the far background.Physical Description
