"The Eye of God - Recreating Andreas Gursky, Bahrain 1 (Google Earth Remix)" 2009

"As many young photographers, I always dreamt about flying around the world, visiting spectacular spots and places, just like Superstar Andreas Gursky does. So finally I decided to stop dreaming and just do It - in Google Earth."


    "A clever hack allows one young photographer to recreate a famous work, minus the price tag"
(via Fastcompany.com)

"Talent leiht, Genie stiehlt. Für die Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe ein klarer Fall fürs Museum."
(via Monopol-Magazin)

"Florian Freier uses Google Earth to digitally tinker with Andreas Gursky’s monumental photographs"
