FROM THE WINDOW SEAT
There is something about viewing the world through a window. Perhaps it’s the limited view that sharpens our awareness. Perhaps it’s the fact that while sitting and peering we become more attuned to our surroundings. In Alfred Hitchcock’s movie “Rear Window,” Jimmy Stewart played a photographer who watched the sordid lives of his neighbors unfold in multiple vignettes. My project, “Window Seat,” though less intriguing from a sociological perspective than Hitchcock’s drama, provides an intriguing platform from which to explore form and light. My Window Seat project is but one of several “window” projects that I’m currently working on.
All of these photographs were made from the window seat of commercial aircraft using a point-and-shoot camera.
