Photo Series Captures Our Increasing Attachment to Our Phones
Looking at our phones has become about as common as breathing.
For most of us, looking at our phones has become about as common as breathing. French photographer Antoine Geiger has created a series of photos, “SUR-FAKE,” that captures our growing connection to our phones and how it leads to a disconnect with the outside world.
“It [places] the screen as an object of ‘mass subculture,’ said Geiger via email to GOOD, “alienating the relation to our own body, and more generally to the physical world.”
“SUR-FAKE” echoes Geiger’s “SUR-FACE” series which focused on identity and his work certainly provides an unsettling look at our screen-obsessed culture.
