Could Mobile Phones Cause Problems in Relationships?
Most of us can admit some sort of dependency on our mobile phones. We fall asleep with them next to our heads, use them for our alarms and to check the time, wake up and hop on them to immediately check social media and e-mails, and continue to keep them close throughout the day. If you share a bed with your significant other, you may even notice that the first thing you do before you get out of bed is not touch or talk to your partner, but hold your phone. A kiss before bedtime? Sure, but often times, your phone has your last bit of attention before getting some shut-eye. North Carolina photographer Eric Pickersgill, 29, offers a glimpse at this problem in his new photographic project called "Removed." His idea for this came after he watched a family eating breakfast in a New York cafe. He noticed that all but the mother was on a phone. For the series, Pickersgill requested people to pose as they would with their mobile phones, except he physically removed the devices. The photographer made sure to cover multiple situations. From couples in bed or lounging on the couch to a family at the dining room table and a group of friends hanging out, it shows how disconnected we are from the people we love and care about. It almost makes you wonder why we choose to surround ourselves with others when we pay no mind to them whatsoever. What are your thoughts on this project?
