Our internet generation has induced a swift drastical change relating to our attitude to photographs. Thousands of photos are uploaded on the internet every minute, creating a visual noise around us. Most of them are from tourists. They take a shot of a certain spot again and again with the sheer purpose of them having their own, visual proof that they have been there.
PLA.net is a book presenting us the countries of our world with a little twist. Unlike the conventional atlases, we cannot find any pictures, maps and information about the world’s countries in it. It is rather a pool of internet images and representations of these places, the product of an averaging algorithm. This algorithm downloads the photos which have been uploaded in a given country needing no editing or manual intervention after that. In the end, these pictures show the true character of their countries expressed via the internet.
