The Bikini Sisters
The Bikini Sisters is a systematic series of work depicting four Hungarian sisters - the mother and aunts of the photographer Maria Arnell. This ongoing project was originally initiated by accidental circumstances in 2001 during a family vacation and has since evolved into a serious project adding up pictures annually.
On first impression the project reveals both portraiture and passage of time, with the intention to give room for comparison over an extensive period. On a deeper level it deals with intricate issues between the five closely related women - and a camera.
