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.
