The era of technology is directly proportional to the era of distant social lives. The generation in which people are more busy with their phones rather than their loved ones. Unfortunately, we at this moment failed as a human being because we are becoming less emotional more practical, it all sounds like we are human robots. Anyway, photographer Eric Pickersgill has released a series of photos from everyday life, by removing all electronic devices.
Eric has named the project “Removed”.
The project was inspired by an observation he made at while sitting in a local cafe:
According to the Removed, Eric said: “Family sitting next to me at Illium café in Troy, NY is so disconnected from one another. Not much talking. Father and two daughters have their own phones out. Mom doesn’t have one or chooses to leave it put away.”
“She stares out the window, sad and alone in the company of her closest family. Dad looks up every so often to announce some obscure piece of info he found online.”
“Twice he goes on about a large fish that was caught. No one replies. I am saddened by the use of technology for interaction in exchange for not interacting.”
“This has never happened before and I doubt we have scratched the surface of the social impact of this new experience. Mom has her phone out now.”
