We have become addicted to digital technology, while completely disconnecting from human behavioral interaction.

To stress this point, photographer Eric Pickersgill just unleashed a new series of photos taken from everyday life. One catch though. All electronic gadgets have been removed from the final photos. The resulting photos are stunning.

Pickersgill’s project was inspired by one simple moment in time. He was sitting next to a family in a cafe when he couldn’t help but notice how humanly disconnected they were to one another.

Pickersgill states,

“Family sitting next to me at Illium café in Troy, NY is so disconnected from one another. Not much talking. Father and two daughters have their own phones out. Mom doesn’t have one or chooses to leave it put away. She stares out the window, sad and alone in the company of her closest family. Dad looks up every so often to announce some obscure piece of info he found online. Twice he goes on about a large fish that was caught. No one replies. I am saddened by the use of technology for interaction in exchange for not interacting. This has never happened before and I doubt we have scratched the surface of the social impact of this new experience. Mom has her phone out now.”
