The Neighbors at Julie Saul Gallery

Lst night, before heading out to shoot a show, I stopped into the Julie Saul Gallery to take a look at Arne Svenson’s photo exhibit, The Neighbors. I found the images quite intriguing and while voyeuristic, they did not feel that they were creepy. They were quite beautiful. The whole ‘violation of privacy’ is a valid and interesting discussion but on the whole I felt that the images were taken in a thoughtful manner that was not intended to expose the subjects as much as it was to expose NYC’s (or any city’s) apartment living – we live on top of each other and indeed have very little privacy – we perceive that we have much more than we actually do.
