Shizuka Yokomizo. Stranger No 8. 1999

From This was just one of a series titled ‘Stranger’ which shows a person standing at their window. Surprisingly the artist has never met the people she photographed. She randomly selected addresses and then wrote letters to the occupants asking them to stand at their window on a certain day at a certain time of night so she could photograph them from the street. She promised she would be there waiting.
