The Neighbors

is a photography series by American photographer Arne Svenson.

Some time ago Svenson began photographing the windows of a neighboring building through the windows of his. He was intrigued not only by the implied stories within the frame of the glass but also by the play of light upon the subjects, the shadows, the framing of the structure and the references to historical painting. He records the turn of the head, the graceful arc of a hand, the human form obscured by drapery –Svenson is not photographing the people as specific, identifiable individuals, more as representations of human kind, of us. Careful not to reveal identities — the strength of the imagery lies in fact that we can see ourselves in the anonymous figures of The Neighbors.
