ATLANTA CELEBRATES PHOTOGRAPHY: NICHOLAS NIXON
Lecture: Thu, Sep 26, 7pm – 9pm
Since the 1970’s, Boston-based photographer Nicholas Nixon (born Detroit, 1947) has practiced large format portraiture and documentary photography, forging a rich and varied body of work celebrated for its humanistic approach and meticulous detail and its exploration of the familiar and impermanent. J
Nixon’s best-known series, “The Brown Sisters” is a serial portrait study that began in 1975 and continues to the present. His work is included in collections at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among other numerous others.
Thanks to the generous promised gift of Lucinda Bunnen, the High is one of the few institutions nationwide that will act as a repository for the entire vintage set of Nixon’s Brown Sisters prints.
Join us for a night of conversation with Nicholas Nixon, as part of the High Museum of Art’s partnership with Atlanta Celebrates Photography.
