Luckily for us, and the people photographed, these images really aren’t as creepy as the concept would imply. Gail Albert Halaban has done what many others in New York may well have done over the years (perhaps with different motives) and captured the humans living around her in the towering concrete jungle that is New York City. In this beautiful selection of voyeuristic images, we are taken not just on a secret journey into the quiet privacy of people’s homes, but also on a trip around the buildings at a height which you don’t often encounter, which she has managed to capture with absolute perfection. New York has never looked better and its inhabitants have got some seriously nice apartments.
Anyway, it’s not spying if it’s art. Right?
