Removed – When a photographer removes all the smartphones from his pictures

To denounce the dangers of Hyperconnectivity, this slavery of modern times driven by our addiction to smartphones and social networks, the American photographer Eric Pickersgill had imagined the Removed series, in which he removes all traces of smartphones, tablets or connected objects. Some amazing pictures that leave his characters in absurd positions, looking for their empty hands with the eyes of a zombie. By removing the smartphones, the photographer manages to express perfectly the gap between connected life and reality, and especially the danger that hangs over our real interactions. A project in line with Strangers in the light created by the French photographer Catherine Balet.
