Tracing time

Forty Portraits in Forty Years by Nicholas Nixon is a fascinating project featuring four sisters  ( the Brown Sisters) standing in the same position, being photographed each year for forty years. I am so attracted to it because of the changes that occur through the passage of time. They are the same four women and yet clearly they are different. Is there something about the movement of time that both preserves and ages?
