a series of unfortunate events/michael wolf

flipping through the world press photo of 2010 i was amazed and enthusiastic about finding michael wolf´s street view images "a series of unfortunate events". Is it maybe the simplicity of the project or the "of course" factor that makes these images so strong? yes and yes. but it is also the idea, at least to me, of what photography is becoming; a way to encounter a deeper self, not by taking pictures, but by thinking about the images we look at at show to others. a big praise to this body of work.
