4 Sisters Photographed Every Year For 36 Years

For 36 years, since 1975, the Brown sisters (Heather, Mimi, Bebe and Laurie) have been taking an annual photo together, standing in the same order, dressing almost similarly, and maintaining the black and white effect.

It all commenced when Nicolas Nixon, a world-renowned photography professor at the Massachusetts College of Art originally photographed his wife and her 3 sisters, who at the time ranged in age from 15 to 25. They were so impressed with the result, they decided to make it a yearly event, the annual family photo. 36 years later, the sisters and Nicolas had all kept their promise, resulting in these 36 beautiful photographs.
