‘The Neighbors’

 Arne Svenson  is a NYC-based photographer that photographed his neighbours for his latest project.

This project , titled ‘The Neighbors’ consists of a series of secretly taken photographs depicting the residents of New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood through their windows.

Arne Sevenson said regarding the privacy issues around his project:

“For my subjects, there is no question of privacy. They are performing behind a transparent scrim on a stage of their own creation with the curtain raised high. The neighbors don’t know they are being photographed; I carefully shoot from the shadows of my home into theirs. I am not unlike the birder, quietly waiting for hours, watching for the flutter of a hand or a movement of a curtain as an indication that there is life within.”
