In 1975, photographer Nicholas Nixon took a picture of his wife and her 3 sisters, who at the time ranged in age from 15 to 25. Then he did it again the next year and suggested that they make it an annual tradition. The women agreed and they have all consistently been a part of the remarkable project now for going on 40 years.
In each photo, the Brown Sisters pose in the same order — Heather, Mimi, Bebe, and Laurie.
