The window is a constant subject in the history of photography both literally and figuratively. Light can pass through a window and/or be reflected off of it. A window can separate two spaces in three dimensions or combine them in two dimensions (image). It can frame a view or obscure it entirely. A window is a photographic cliche. The window is a viewfinder to the world and a picture of a window is a picture of photography itself.
