Nicholas Nixon sat down with us to talk about his series The Brown Sisters, which celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year. The series, which began in 1974, depicts Nixon’s wife, Bebe, and her three sisters.

We’re all aware of time passing and us not being aware of it while it’s passing…so seeing the sisters, for a lot of people, just gives them the sort of reliable marker that a year has passed. —Nicholas Nixon
