Eyes are supposed to be the windows of our souls or minds, but then what of the window itself? Is it not a means to capture a symbolic message? What does it mean to look through, at and be looked at through a window?
Windows provide a literal and figurative opening. They access light for the photographer and so much more.
Here are some fine examples of this subject for your pleasure. Several important photographers are represented in this group, including Sabine Weiss, Dora Maar, Marcel Marien, Laure Albin-Guillot, Charles Harbutt and Ralph Gibson.
