„I saw that smartphones were becoming a barrier to communication in person. I saw how people used it as a social prop, to hide their awkwardness, to fill the silence … they basically allow people to withdraw rather than engage.“ Babycakes Romero
In his photo series, Death of a Conversation, London-based photographer Babycakes Romero captures people and their connection with their mobiles rather than with each other. It’s both: fascinating and sad to see human beings staring at their mobile phones all the time instead of realizing who is standing actually beside them in the real-world. So, maybe we should all be more aware of what is happening around as than to stare in our digital devices. Let’s start now!
I wish you a wonderful weekend with lots of inspiring offline moments!
