Gail Albert Halaban: Paris Views is a continuation of Halaban's 2012 series Out My Window. In this new set of images, Halaban shifts her focus from New York to Paris--while continuing to steady her gaze through the windows of her neighbors and others in the community.
The photographs, taken between 2012 and 2013, feature cinematic atmospheres and intimate domestic stills. Through Halaban's lens, the viewer is welcomed into the private worlds of ordinary people. The photographs in Paris Views explore the conventions and tensions of urban lifestyles, the blurring between reality and fantasy, feelings of isolation in the city and the intimacies of home and daily life.
Gail Albert Halaban (born in Washington, D.C., 1970) received an MFA in photography from Yale University. She has taught at the Pasadena Art Center and International Center of Photography, and at Yale, among other notable institutions.
