Artists have always been known for depicting the view they see through their windows. Salvador Dali is one such artist who created a piece called, “Young Woman at a Window,” in 1925, which depicted a woman looking out at the bay of Cadeques. In the modern day version of this kind of fascination with personal vantage points, a Facebook group called View From Your Window” has become a place for people from all over the world to share their unique perspectives. Group members share pictures of their surroundings from their window, or through the lens of their camera. The group was initially created during the lockdown stage of COVID19, according to the group’s description: “View from YOUR window was created in August 2020 when we were all in Covid lockdown. I (Marian Viljoen – founder) had a fabulous view over the Indian Ocean and Mtamvuna River Valley at Port Edward, South Africa.” The group was made to help encourage and uplift people from around the globe, during a time when many could not be physically close to others – with a mission to “encourage them to look outside their own 4 walls and see the beauty around them.” Read on to learn more about 15 of the most interesting perspectives you can find in this insightful group “View From Your Window.”
