Forty Portraits in Forty Years

I wanted to share the link for this striking photo essay I came across over the weekend. It just goes to show how a photo essay can be documented over a mere few days (as we have seen ourselves), or it may turn into a lengthy career-long project. Nicholas Nixon’s series will be exhibited at the MoMA, coinciding with the museum’s publication of the book “The Brown Sisters: Forty Years” in November.
