Faces in Places is a photoblog that features (as the author describes) photographs of faces found in everyday places. The featured photographs consist of inanimate objects that a viewer would perceive as representing a face. This perception is a type of anthropomorphism - people attributing human qualities to a non-human being or object.

It is one of a growing trend of comedy photoblogs (such as I Can Has Cheezburger? and Sleeveface), where the content is created by an online community.

History

The Faces in Places blog was launched on Monday, April 23, 2007, with a photo of a crane that resembles a grasshopper. Prior to this, the editor had started to encourage people with a similar interest in anthropomorphic images to submit them to a Flickr group. The Flickr group is now the main source of images used on the blog.

Notoriety

On September 21st, 2007, Faces in Places was featured in the b3ta newsletter[1], which led to an increased level of interest in the project from the blogosphere[2], global newspaper[3][4] and television press.

On Monday, January 7, 2008, the project won Yahoo! Find of the Year 2007 in the Weird & Wonderful category.[5]
