When Nicholas Nixon took an unremarkable group shot of his wife Bebe and her three sisters in 1975, they had no way of knowing that it was the beginning of a remarkable art project. Nixon continued to replicate the original portrait every year thereafter, documenting the effect of time on the four women. This is a selection of some of those amazing photos.
