Michael Wolf's new Street View project—a natural progression of explorations of population density, privacy, and architecture—uses Google's street view technology to reveal the more subtle, symbolic aspects of the urban experience. Departing from his typical large-format photographs, Wolf spent hundreds of hours searching the world by mouse-click rather than through his lens, the results of which are as timely as they are remarkable.
