New photo artist fave: Out My Window

Monday, October 8, 2012

I'm already fascinated with glancing in to windows when I'm walking around the neighborhood at night (that sounds super creepy...but you know what I mean, right?) - there's always been something about getting a glimpse of someone else's life - so obviously this photo book is amazing to me. Granted, her photos are staged but it is still applicable to the curiosity...read an interview with the photographer, Gail Albert Halaban about her photo book, Out My Window at Life & Times.

P.S. happy monday!

This is my husband's favorite thing to do (Wow. That does sound really creepy).
He loves to take walks around dusk and get glimpses of people sitting around their television after dinner or reading to their kids on the couch. He's a very voyeuristic person so I think he'd love this.

I guess I have to jump on the creepy bandwagon because this is one of my favourite things to do too! I love this picture

I know what you mean about sneaky a peak. As we drive past houses I often wonder about the people inside, the lives the live and what their place looks like. As we begin house hunting I am loving getting legitimate sneaky peeks!

My bedroom window looks out into a courtyard and I can always see who's lights are left on during the wee hours of the morning. This does sound like a really interesting concept

How awesome is this! I can't resist sneaking a peek at people's open windows as I walk by either :-)

Wow, that is quite a view. It's like in the movies! Living in a suburban community, and being lucky enough to always have a green view from my residence rooms, I haven't had the experience of spying on people!

Love looking out onto the world, which we were much more able to do when we lived in London. OUr artist friend took a photo called "The Other Room" looking next door and it so resonated with me.

So fascinating. I admit...it's incredibly interesting to peek inside another person's world. =)

I love doing this as well! If people don't want you to look then they should close their curtains ;)

i'm not going to lie, i like looking out and seeing what's going on out there, on the street or into buildings. that's what windows are for... and if no one wants to be viewed/seen, pull the blinds/curtains. it's not creepy if you're being curious with a cursory glance, it is if you use binoculars...
