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.
The original pictures were actually shot by an army of Google’s hybrid electric automobiles, each equipped with 9 cameras on a single pole. That’s why Jon calls his project “The Nine Eyes of Google Street View.”
