Nine Eyes

Tomas Banišauskas for Demilked:

Canadian artist Jon Rafman is an unusual photographer – he explores Google Street Views and takes screenshots of the most incredible sights here. From a toddler left on street to a tiger roaming near a convenience store – “with its supposedly neutral gaze, the Street View photography had a spontaneous quality unspoiled by the sensitivities or agendas of a human photographer,” says Jon.

Banišauskas has compiled thirty favourites from the artist’s collection, but Rafman’s site is full of interesting examples of great images captured on Street View. This isn’t your typical collection of odd Street View photos.
