Here are 3 things I thought were worth sharing this week:
- Stuck at home for weeks in the middle of summer, photographer L.B Jeffries spends his days observing his neighbors' lives, peeking through the open windows into their rooms. Hitchcock's film revisited in Rear Window Timelapse, by Jeff Desom
- Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916) took inspiration from everyday life. This series explores one single space, a room with a window and a door, at different times of the day.
- In René Magritte's later painting career after WWII, he used a philosophical device he called the "problem of the window" to generate new and intriguing ways of viewing the world.
(Almost) Every week, I send out a list of 3 things worth sharing — new art, thoughts, and interesting links. I hope you will find this email useful!
