arne svenson and his neighbors

             What would you do if one day you walked in a gallery and you saw yourself on a wall displayed as an art work ? Well, that’s pretty much the story of the people who are the neighbors of artist photographer Arne Svenson.

           ” The Neighbors ” is indeed a brilliant show that captures life as life is…gorgeous compositions featuring the lives of Arne’s neighbors; the photographs have a painting feeling, and you can’t see the faces of the subjects…this series made me wonder what other moments he might have captured but chose not to show…perhaps that is what his neighbors also thought…some are so infuriated over privacy laws…and law suits are flying left and right…
            I saw the exhibit at the Julie Saul Gallery in Chelsea and loved every single piece !
