In a collection of secret candid photographs, Arne Svenson documents his neighbors in 'The Neighbors.' Svenson covertly took photos of people through their transparent windows while they were completely unaware of his presence.

As a result of Svenson's efforts, 'The Neighbors' captures private and intimate moments within the lives of his neighbors. Though no faces were shown, the pictures still feel as if you are being admitted into a place that you should not be.

With the release of this collection, many privacy concerns were raised. Svenson's neighbors were extremely dismayed at the invasion of privacy. They are currently looking at the possibility of a legal solution. Unfazed by the outcries generated by the privacy violations, Svenson likened himself as a "birder" or a bird watcher.
