A Sister’s Sister

In my family, we talk a lot about sisterhood. With two adult daughters, my point of view on the subject is mostly parental.

There’s no better feeling as a father than seeing my girls in harmony with each other.

Recently I was able to observe another aspect of sisterhood in the realm of religious life and service. The Sisters of St. Dominic invited me to their motherhouse in Amityville, New York for two days of photography.

While this place is the nexus for Sisters, they’re not the only ones involved in sisterhood.

Every single woman that I photographed there was engaged in that graceful existence.

One particular subject, one of the many nurses on-site, was unmistakably every sister’s sister.
