4 Sisters Pose For The Same Pic For 40 Years

It was the summer of 1975, when Nicholas Nixon was visiting his in-laws when “on a whim” he asked the four sisters to huddle together for a casual family photo.  Who are these sisters? All we know is that from left to right stood Heather, Mimi, BeBe, and Laurie ­– the Brown sisters.

Just a year later, at one of the sister’s graduations, Nixon suggested they line up again in the same order. After he shot the picture he asked if they might do it every year.  This black-and-white photograph of the four young women standing pale in their summer attire was the spark that triggered Nixon’s Forty Year Project – documenting their life and growing old together.

Who would have thought that the photographs originating in 1975 would be on display for the world to see at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, coinciding with the publication of “The Brown Sisters: Forty Years. Take a peek at the incredible photos of these four sisters and their 40-year journey together.
