Inquisitive cameras of many photographers study windows around the world. The scrutiny of their lenses reveals windows richly encrusted with history and windows that look toward the future. There are windows that jealously guard privacy and windows that strive to dissolve the barriers that divide the world from the viewer. Delicately-wrought marble laces grace the window of an Indian temple; handcarved wooden shutters guard a peasant's home in Siberia; piles of fish in a Dutch fishmonger's window suggest prosperity in an orderly world. There is a glimpse of hidden worlds and private corners. There are sweeping vistas or small enchanted spaces. More than 150 magnificent photographs in color, complemented by a perceptive and thoughtful text by Val Clery.
