Geolocation is a project by photographer team Larson & Shindelman in which they connect locations to Twitter posts. They searched through the millions of tweets that are generated everyday and used publicly available GPS metadata to track the locations of where the tweets were orignally sent. Next they traveled to the spot and photograped the locations. The final images are combined with the tweet, adding quite an interesting layer of context and humanity to its anonymous sender
