Voyeuristically Photographing New York City Apartments


You should consider always keeping your curtains closed if you are neighbors with photographer Gail Albert Halaban! Based in New York, the artist gets to know her neighbors by photographing the unsuspecting subjects through open and exposed apartment windows. At first, the project, Out My Window, seems a little bit invasive, but after reading a bit more, it turns out that she actually stages each photograph in order to evoke a sense of voyeurism.

By ringing the doorbells of strangers and building relationships with her subjects, Albert Halaban is in fact getting to know her neighbors, she just goes about it in a less creepy, stalker-like way than the project initially suggests!
