Photographer eliminates the phone from his images to show how we have become Employees!

According to the Pew Research Center , 65% of American adults use social networks, a number that has risen steadily from 7% in 2005, when their search began.
The pandemic digital has become so severe that it is almost more common to see a person look at his cell phone when you pass on the street, that catch his eye or share a smile with him / her.


For further interpret what this is obvious and significant, the photographerEric Pickersgill took and published a series of photographs of everyday life with a minor adjustment: all electronic devices have been removed!


The project, entitled Removed , was inspired and initiated by an observation that did one morning while sitting in a bar:


Family members sitting next to me all'Illium Cafeteria in Troy, NY are so disconnected from each other. They not hardly ever speak. The father and his two daughters watch their telephones. The mother does not have one, but choose to put it away. Staring out the window, sad and alone, "company" of his family close to her (physically close). The father looks at them every so often to announce some obscure piece found on-line. No one answers. I am saddened by the use of technology, this has never happened before and I doubt that we have scratched the surface of the social impact of this new experience. Mom has now pulled out his cell phone.


Surely we can all look something like this quite easily in today's world, if we do not live unconsciously. Here are some photos that Eric has published on its website:

If you're not part of the vast majority of obsessed / technology, certainly in this series of photographs it is something to learn. For those of us who feel part of the problem, it is a reminder to be aware that the use of the technology and our electronic devices, and "addiction", albeit lower that creates in our daily lives. Check how much time you spend to stay digitally connected and make a conscious effort to replace slowly this time with physical presence.
