The world is becoming more and more digital. This became most evident, when Google set out to document large parts of the world with 360-degree panoramic cameras in 2007. Google Street View is already available for 33 countries. Every day, new places are being added. Some people feel that their privacy is being invaded. Others are fascinated.
I was fascinated, and decided to go on a virtual round-the-world trip on Google Street View. Just like everybody does when travelling, I recorded my many impressions by way of photographs. With my iPhone, I took a picture of each destination directly from the computer screen. Then, I converted the snapshot with the Polaroid Instant Cam app into a conventional vacation memory.
My photographs are therefore photographs of photographs, that record a journey that never happened. But, what difference does it make?
