Everyone Else Looks So I Look Too

I was watching an interview with John Baldessari (a father of American conceptual photography) in which he talked about a series where he placed different photos next to each other. He said that for him each photo had a single word that went with it; thus placing multiple images together is like creating a poem. His approach  inspired the following two images:

You may recognize Allen Ginsberg in the portrait photo.

 I like the idea with this image that when you look at the image on the let and see the man looking in the window there is a tendency to judge him as creepy and shady. However with the image on the right we as the viewer are performing the very same act.
