Out My Window NYC

I found Out My Window NYC through Something Rotten and I thought it was a pretty rad idea. Gail Albert Halaban has started taking photos of apartments in New York to see what they see out their windows. The project has also started to focus on people who have windows that look out onto someone else’s window, specifically to get the neighbors to meet and possibly make a connection through the experience of having their picture taken.

What I really like about this project is that you get to see into people’s everyday lives, something I think everyone kind of enjoys in our modern voyeuristic society. The photos themselves are also shot in a really beautiful way which obviously adds to the overall enjoyment. The subjects are pretty interesting as well, like the woman in her bathroom while a construction worker outside her window looks in. If you live in New York you should check the site out, and maybe even try to be a part of the project, and if you enjoy good photography, go check it out as well.
