Soul-Sucking Photos Show How Smartphones Are Ruining Our Lives

Are we addicted?
Publish date:

In this series titled 'SUR-FAKE' French photographer Antoine Geiger photographs people using their smartphones for anything from selfies to just browsing social media or messaging someone and then photoshops the phone to look as if it's sucking in their face, essentially consuming who they are.

The end result is a striking photo that comments on how we are increasingly dependant on technology and the effect this is having on us, “It is placing the screen as an object of ‘mass subculture’, alienating the relation to our own body, and more generally to the physical world,” he writes here.

Whilst not everyone is totally dependant on their smartphone to get them through the day this series does raise some interesting questions about our relationship with technology. To see more of Geiger's work be sure to visit his website, Facebook page and Tumblr.
