Street View – The Photographer

Essay from ArtFagCity about the type of photographer Streetview is, as if it was an artist. In fact of course we know it's automated photography, so it should feel totally objective – not influenced by moods, feelings and reactions to surroundings.

However the observer, looking through images produced by Streetview can find from the millions of images created, an image that aesthetically they align to – even though there is no artist decision behind the decision of how the image was taken, the framing, colours etc.
