Photographer Removes Smartphones From People’s Hands To Show How Addicted We Are

It’s no secret that we, as a society, are addicted to technology. Open your eyes and look around. Everywhere you look, people are glued to their smartphones and tablets. It seems as if simple small talk and forming relationships with others have been replaced with mindless Internet browsing and social media stalking. The following images created by Eric Pickersgill show just how bad this problem has become. He is an innovation photographer who questions our reality and forces his viewers to think when looking at his work.  This is what we would look like with no smartphones in our hands:

1. Embrace one another.
