So those of you on tender hooks today awaiting the results of my ‘A Room with a View’ competition will have to wait. Sorry but the day job has got in the way so no time to put all the entrants in a hat and compile a winners post. Will get to it over the weekend and all will be revealed on Monday morning first thing, I promise.
In the meantime though I would like to share a project on a similar tack by the marvelously talented Gail Albert Haliban. ‘Out my window NYC’ is a documentary photography project Gail is working on in collaboration with the Design Trust for Public Space about people and their views in New York City and beyond. Best of all Gail is in the midst of this epic journey and is looking for volunteers, here’s the skinny in her own words:
DO YOU HAVE A VIEW INTO SOMEONE ELSE’S APARTMENT? CURIOUS TO MEET THEM?
I am a photographer working on a documentary project about New Yorkers and their views with a specific interest in connecting neighbors who would otherwise never meet. If you look into someone else’s apartment, I would like to photograph you looking into their place and them looking back at you.
If you live in any of the 5 boroughs or nearby New Jersey, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a jpg of you and your view today.
You will receive 1 FREE 8×10 photograph if your view is photographed for the project.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Gail is writing a blog as she goes here. Be sure to spread the good word.
