Smartphone users in lonely world

Photographer removes our smartphones to show our strange and lonely new world


Are you reading this on a handheld device? 

There’s a good chance you are. 
Now imagine how’d you look if that device suddenly disappeared. 
Lonely? Slightly crazy? Perhaps next to a person being ignored? 

As we are sucked in ever more by the screens we carry around, even in the company of friends and family, the hunched pose of the phone-absorbed seems increasingly normal.

US photographer Eric Pickersgill has created “Removed,” a series of photos to remind us of how strange that pose actually is. 



In each portrait, electronic devices have been “edited out” (removed before the photo was taken, from people who’d been using them) so that people stare at their hands, or the empty space between their hands, often ignoring beautiful surroundings or opportunities for human connection. 




The results are a bit sad and eerie—and a reminder, perhaps, to put our phones away.
