When was the last time you went on a vacation and actually looked at something? I dont mean with your smartphone or to take a picture or snapchat a view or to share it. I mean just saw something beautiful and looked at it for the sheer pleasure of enjoying its beauty and not to click, share, post. I am pretty sure most people will remember only the pretty photographs they took instead of enjoying the real deal or even real meal. American photographer Eric Pickersgill has also noted this not-so-good- change in our personal and inter-personal relationships and has captured everyday lives and moments by removing the smartphones from everyones hands. The project is called “removed” and it is truly moving.
The idea first appeared to him when he himself dropped his smartphone to see whats happening around him; to his dismay everyone was looking down, not at their food, but at their smartphones. Families sitting together to not talk but text and so on. His photographs look real as he asked posers to stay put with their phones while he removed it from their hands and took a shot. Such is our life now, what do you think?
