Nicholas Nixon (Detroit, Michigan, 1947) holds a unique and outstanding place in the history of photography in recent decades. He focuses particularly on portraits and with a clear interest in the descriptive possibilities of the camera. His work reveals tension between what is visible, content (with an extraordinary clarity and compositional skill) and what is invisible, the thoughts and concerns that emerge in his images. The series The Brown Sisters is Nicholas Nixon’s best-known work, consisting of portraits of his wife Beverly Brown (Bebe) and her three sisters, taken each year without interruption since 1975. From this simple starting point, Nixon has created one of the most convincing investigations into portraiture and the passing of time of contemporary photography.
