Today I read in the newspaper that photographer Nicholas Nixon has exhibited a series of images in the National Gallery of Art in New York. So far this is another story, however, what is important is what this series shows. These are images of his wife and three sisters from 1975 to 2010.
These photographs not only show the passage of time, but also invite us to think about what the relationship between these sisters is like, how be his life These photographs have led me to reflect on the importance of relationships between brothers.
The relationship between brothers throughout life
Siblings not only have genes, culture, education or social class in common, they also share the same experiences within the family and live the same events. Each person is unique and has his own personality, two brothers raised under the same roof can develop different ways of behaving, however, both share the same memories and experiences.
According to the child psychologist María del Mar García Orgaz, the brother during childhood is a source of company. Among them there is a relationship of love and friendship, but also of hostility, rivalry, competitiveness, jealousy and, sometimes, hatred. They are very intense relationships. Throughout adolescence, they can become advisors or confidants and become great allies. When in maturity, the brothers begin to form their own family, they tend to have a relationship of love and support towards both the other and their nephews. Already in old age, when the children have left home and spouses or relatives have died, they have a closer relationship of mutual understanding and support.Evidently this is not always the case, sibling relationships sometimes do not work and are tense or non-existent. However, no one should miss it, the fraternal relationship offers a unique and very special support throughout life and, often, are closer than the parents themselves. A brother can contribute to make your life happier by providing important values such as company, love, understanding, friendship, security or understanding.
