Somebody’s Watching You

There’s something of the voyeur in everyone and a lot of it in Gail Albert Halaban. She has shot a series of images under the title ‘Out my window’ which focuses on the views from New York apartments of neighboring buildings and their inhabitants.

Who hasn’t caught themselves staring from their 3rd floor 400-foot cell at other city dwellers as they go about the strange mundanity that constitutes a life?

Of course it’s hard not to look, as just about everyone in the city looks out on someone else.

Alfred Hitchcock turned this voyeurism into one of his best films ‘Rear Window’.

Halaban turns it into a fascinating series that let us know that you are never truly alone in New York.
