Photography - Quantity: 1 - Book

Nicholas Nixon is an American photographer. Nixon is mainly known for his portraits and photo documentaries. He uses an 8 x 10-inch view camera and always photographs in black and white.
In August 1974, photographer Nicholas Nixon made a group portrait of his wife, Bebe, and her three sisters, Heather, Mimi and Laurie: The Brown Sisters. He did not keep that image, but in 1975 he made another portrait of the four, who then ranged in age from 15 to 25. Working with an 8 x 10-inch view camera, whose large negatives capture a wealth of detail and a luscious continuity of tone, Nixon did the same in 1976, and this second successful photograph prompted him to suggest to the sisters that they assemble for a portrait every year. The women agreed and have gathered for an annual portrait ever since. Nicholas Nixon: 40 Years of The Brown Sisters celebrates the 40th anniversary of the series in 2014 with all 40 portraits.
