I photograph people obsessed with their phones
To begin with, I do not have any problems with mobile technologies. Yes, I believe that they facilitate and accelerate our life. But I also believe that this makes the life of many of us incredibly boring ...
I started taking pictures of people in my companyphones whenever I saw in the potential frame a certain symmetry. For me, it was important that the frame bears a visual value. This is the only way to realize the sad reality, of which we all became a part.
Before the mobile phones were invented,people had no other way of communicating, except how to communicate with each other. Now we all pretend that we have something important in the phones, instead of just talking.
It all kills conversations. I think this is a big social problem.
Think about it this way. A huge number of people use cigarettes as a certain social support. They, of course, are very harmful to health, but they, at least, do not prevent us from communicating with each other.
We must be strong enough to free ourselves from the chains of our smartphones and again start to communicate face to face!
