9-Eyes: scenes from Google Street View by Jon Rafman

Rafman’s collection of found images, culled from Google Street View, has been on-going for some time and has grown into an astonishing collection. Certainly the tech giant gets credit for snapping the photos, but Rafman has some keen sense of how to sift through all that information and edit down to a collection of poignant scenes.

There’s this momentary, off-the-cuff snapshot quality of this human circus that is reminiscent of Garry Winogrand. Also there are a lot of people flipping the Google car the bird. It’s a terrific ongoing project and one of my favorite blogs. As much fun as it is to explore Google maps for oneself, I’m glad we have Rafman for the highlights.
