While traditional street photography usually catches strangers passing by in a public space, the photographer Michele Iversen has been catching strangers passing by in their own private spaces, without their permission.
At night she sits in her car and watches the warm glowing windows of strangers' homes waiting for the perfect shot.
She Sees Your Every Move won a Best Documentary: Honorable Mention Award in the 2012 Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. The story was produced by Jonathan Mitchell with editors Michele Siegel and David Krasnow for Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen, a co-production of PRI and WNYC.
