The society we live in is fast-paced and always changing. What is haute couture now may be fashion faux pas in just a few seasons; similarly, technology that is hot and in-demand today may not be in a few months’ time. Even the professions we have now are evolving pretty fast; our children’s jobs in the future may not be existing yet and our current jobs may be phased out pretty soon. Yes, this is the type of world we live in – where we are forced to adapt to the changes happening all around us – from fashion to technology, to yep, even eating habits.

One cause of the changes we observe in our society today is the advent of the internet. Because of it, communication became more efficient, education became more accessible, and our daily lives just about easier (albeit lazier). A caveat, though: this technological development is a double-edged sword. While we are empowered by the information that is easily accessible at our fingertips, we also tend to become enslaved by it. Case in point: how many people have you seen in restaurants so engrossed with taking photos of their food and tinkering with their hand-held devices that they forget the importance of human interaction?

These poignant and highly striking photos illustrate just that – the ironies and harsh realities of our society today. Scroll down and see how many you are guilty of.
