[Image: Google Street View, Victoria Highway, Gregory, Australia. Tom Moody on Jon Rafman’s Google Street View project: “I was attracted to the noisy amateur aesthetic of the raw images. [Google] Street Views evoked an urgency I felt was present in earlier street photography. With its supposedly neutral gaze, the Street View photography had a spontaneous quality unspoiled by the sensitivities or agendas of a human photographer. This very way of recording our world, this tension between an automated camera and a human who seeks meaning, reflects our modern experience.”]
