Can you see your neighbors?
I am looking for volunteers who would let us location scout their windows and participate in this project. I am looking for people who see into their neighbors windows and are willing to let me shoot from their window to their neighbor.
I am starting in Holland and Paris but am doing this the world over.

I photograph from one apartment and take a picture of their neighbor. Some of the photos will be published in a book by Editions of Martinière.http://www.editionsdelamartiniere.fr/
Here is an example of an article published in November 2012 M MagazineLe Monde.

I am now doing this project all over the world.

Let me know if you want to participate in this wonderful project and do not hesitate to forward to your friends. You can contact me at gail@gailalberthalaban.com
Thank you again!

If you are interested, here are some quick things you can tell me:
1. please let me know your address, email address and phone number and the best times to reach you
2. please let me know if you think the best view is from your apartment to your neighbors or from your neighbors apartment to yours
3. please let me know if you know your neighbors
4. if you do not know your neighbors, please let me know if you have any idea how to figure out who they are? Do you have an address? Do you know anyone in the same building? Do you think you could find the access code to the building?
5. please email me a snapshot from your apartment to your neighbors. This can come from a cell phone. Simply a shot for me to get a sense of the perspective.
