9 Eyes by Jon Rafman

  • Posted by SHFT on September 17, 2011 in Photography
  • There was a time when photographers would have to brave the blazing heat and freezing cold to snap pics of the real world. Not anymore.

    Now, thanks to Google Street View (and a bit of privacy invasion), anyone with an internet connection has full access to a huge bank of street images. 

    With his 9 Eyes project, Canadian artist Jon Rafman seizes the technology and presents us with curated Google Street View snapshots. Rafman declares that "the world captured by Google appears to be more truthful and more transparent because of the weight accorded to external reality, the perception of a neutral, unbiased recording, and even the vastness of the project." 

    Sometimes humorous, frequently disturbing, and always fascinating, Rafman's 9 Eyes pics are honest depictions of human interaction with the Earth.
