Crime Library: Criminal Minds and Methods

Life on the Street as Captured by Google Street View

In a project called 9 eyes, named for the number of camera lenses on Google’s street view cars, artist Jon Rafman has scoured street view for intriguing images captured by the all-seeing cars as they trudge along on their mission of cataloging the entire world. It’s a truly painstaking but worthwhile venture — he’s found images of loose horses, loose babies, back alley transactions, house fires and other standout moments from the lives of people he’ll likely never meet. Below, we’ve picked out a few images of law and discord in progress. For more photos from Rafman’s digital found-art project, visit
