Photographer Removes Smartphones from Photographs to Portray our Addiction to Technology

Photographer Eric Pickersgill created this collection of photographs called Removed to illustrate how bizarre would life be if we removed out digital devices. The idea came when the artist sat by a family at a restaurant and noticed that there was no human interaction happening when everybody compulsively used their phones. “This phantom limb is used as a way of signaling busyness and unapproachability, while at the same time existing as an addictive force that promotes the splitting of attention between those who are physically with you and those who are not.” says the artist about the collection.
