In addition to his iconic prints, drawings, wall drawings and structures, Sol LeWitt also used photography. Like much of his work, his photographs were arranged in grids, thus balancing the variations of the external world with the order of a strict grid. As a majority of the photographs depict groups of windows (often rectilinear), the grid of 72 photographs is also a grid of grids, in a way. For LeWitt, the results of organizing (aka arranging in a grid) were as, if not more important as the subjects of the actual photographs. “Windows” is an exceedingly rare work from 1980 and is LeWitt’s only editioned grid of photographs.
