Above: The Brown Sisters, New Canaan, Conn., 1975

Begun in 1975, 25 Years of the Brown Sisters, is a collection of annual group portraits of the artist’s wife Bebe and her three sisters. For this series, the artist adheres to two unwavering constants. First, the sisters always pose in the same frontal sequence; Laurie, Heather, Bebe, and Mimi. Second, regardless of how many negatives exposed, only one is selected for printing from each individual year’s batch.
