More Photography and Time

Not mine, but this is the article that prompted my last post. A pro photographer named Nicolas Nixon took a picture of his wife and her sisters in 1975. He was using an 8x10 view camera, so this was not just a quick snapshot.

He took one the next year. And then it became a theme. He took one every year. For forty years. Somewhere in the sequence it becomes art. The women mature. The images become more evocative. Here's the latest one.
