Street View Ghosts Haunt the Streets
Artist Paolo Cirio has been busy searching Google Maps for interesting images of people caught on Street View. He then creates full-size posters of the people he finds and sticks the posters up in the exact same location where the images were taken by the Street View car.
The website for the project, Street Ghosts includes street photographs of all the posters in situ and a Google Map of all the locations. Using the map you can check out the original Street View images where the poster 'ghosts' were first caught for posterity and where they now remain in poster form.
