Google Street Photography? Doug Rickard Uses the Google Image Archive for A New American Picture

Google Street View Photography

Street photography has always skirted the line between privacy and art, between the notion of keeping someone’s moment private and the photographer’s wish to share, and between exploitation and documentation.

In this video, photographer Doug Rickard talks about why he decided to utilize Google Street View cameras to document areas of America that have been forgotten, ignored, or left alone and how this process dealt with street photography’s inherent tension between privacy and art.

And perhaps at the same time, using new technology, Rickard may have invented an altogether new genre of photography.
