Have you seen these photographs before? I can’t get enough of them. They are so beautiful, interesting, thought provoking and I must admit, a bit chilling too!
They were shot by Arne Svenson, a NYC photographer who a while ago created this series entitled Neighbors. Basically the whole series is about him capturing and revealing very intimate and personal moments of his Manhattan neighbors. He shows how the smallest glimpses of someone’s life can tell us so much about them and us, for that matter - as the strength of the imagery lies in the fact that we can see ourselves in the anonymous figures. Boy, oh boy, yet again it strikes me how limited privacy we really have when living in big cities with big windows and buildings all around. But on the other hand, we all enjoy a little sneak peek into someone else’s life from time to time, don’t we? Thoughts? xo
P.S: This series reminds me of the 'out my window' project from over a year ago.
P.P.S: Bird's eye view...
