A New Book, SISTERS by Jim Britt
In 1976, Jim Britt photographed his two daughters at their home in Los Angeles. Shot in black and white, one resulting image – which would later be known as ‘Sisters’ – captured 12-year old Jody and 11-year old ‘Mimi’ Melendy in an ecstatic fit of laughter, both proudly baring their matching braces.
Twelve years later, in 1988, a representative from Comme des Garçons discovered the ‘Sisters’ image in People magazine and asked to license it for a campaign. Published for AW88, this unassuming family photograph quickly became immortalized in fashion history: unstaged, joyful and flawed, everything fashion advertising normally wasn‘t.
Booklet and poster housed in clear front, white backed PVC sleeve, and accompanied by foil-blocked grey board. Purchase SISTERS Online Here for £25
