PHOTOGRAPHER MICHAEL WOLF recently received an honorable mention award from the World Press Photo competition. His winning entry was titled, "A series of unfortunate events."
Each of the 12 images in the collection (including the image above) are photographs that Wolf shot while aiming his camera at his computer screen while browsing Google Street View images.
Does Wolf deserve recognition for this work? Or should Google claim credit and the photojournalism prize?
Many people, by the way, are finding striking images created by the Google cameras roaming the streets. Does that make them artists?
