Giorgio Barrera

THROUGH THE WINDOW (2002-2008)

There can be a story behind every window, Giorgio Barrera says. Even the most commonplace pictures of an ordinary house, completely unveiled to the eye, give us the feeling that we are still not seeing everything. Barrera photographed the windows, but in the last analysis we – the viewers – are the voyeurs, as if we were there, without the intervention of the photographer. Moreover, from our safe and privileged position we can look longer and more intently than we would dare to do standing before actual windows. We can identify with the situation that can be seen through the window; we can satisfy our curiosity and become disoriented.
