Awe and legal actions have been among the reactions for Arne Svenson’s photographs that blur the line between public and private.

The artist’s 2013 exhibition, The Neighbors, included images of New York residents inside their lower Manhattan apartments taken with a telephoto lens, and sure enough, instigated a lawsuit. Later that year, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Svenson on the grounds that the photographs, as art, were protected under the First Amendment.
