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:
