School by Robert Coles( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a rare collaboration, Pulitzer Prize-winning child psychiatrist Robert Coles and photographer Nicholas Nixon explore the lives of children in three Boston-area settings: a Cambridge elementary school, Perkins School for the Blind, and the elite Boston Latin School. A microcosm of American schoolchildren today, the students photographed by Nixon range from the profoundly challenged, at Perkins, to the most gifted. Nixon's penetrating portraits, some accompanied by comments by or about the children, alternate with a three-part essay by Dr. Coles, himself a graduate of Boston Latin and intimately familiar with the other two schools. Exploring the students' inner lives with extraordinary sensitivity, Dr. Coles also recalls key moments that helped to shape his own very influential outlook."--Jacket

Nicholas Nixon : the Brown Sisters ; forty years by Nicholas Nixon( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1974, the photographer Nicholas Nixon made a group portrait of his wife, Bebe, and her three sisters, Heather, Mimi and Laurie--the Brown sisters. He did not keep that image, but in 1975 he made another portrait of the four, who then ranged in age from 15 to 25. Working with an 8 x 10-inch view camera, whose large negatives capture a wealth of detail and a luscious continuity of tone, Nixon did the same in 1976, and this second successful photograph prompted him to suggest to the sisters that they assemble for a portrait every year. The women agreed and have gathered for an annual portrait ever since. Nicholas Nixon: 40 Years of the Brown Sisters celebrates the 40th anniversary of the series with luminous tritone reproductions of all 40 portraits and a new afterword by Sarah Hermanson Meister, which examines the series' public exhibitions, critical reception, and cult following
