Roger Ballen

Roger Ballen is an American photographer who works (among other things) documenting rural South Africa. The photographs are stunning, and blur the line between reality and staging: its easy to see his hand in the staging of the photographs, but unclear what elements are his responsibility. Check out his work on his website!

Jon Rafman - 9 eyes

Hey y'all

I've been getting really into some work by this guy Jon Rafman. In one of his projects, he makes large scale prints of images he captures in Google Street View. This is pretty crazy, considering the nature of this work as photography. He is essentially doing Bresson's work, searching for the Decisive Moment, but rather than shooting it himself, he's using the (literally) millions of images that Google has produced for Street View. The work talks about the beauty of our world through an interesting lens, the nine eyes of the Google camera. The three images I've posted here came from the blog Rafman uses to document the project, which is here:
