Photographer Shows How Our Phone Addiction is Slowly Stealing our Souls





A photographer has embarked on a project to show how our gadgets are sucking our souls out of us as we continue our seemingly neverending quest to “connect” to the world.

How much attention does your smartphone or tablet hold for you? Or does it have a total and absolute grasp of you completely? French photographer, Antoine Geiger shows how our phone addiction steals our souls in a shocking series of images:

Imprisoned by electronic devices…

The photo series, titled “Sur-Fake,” takes a closer look at our smartphone dependency, and how the mass subculture of gadget addiction has taken us into a virtual “out of body experience,” alienating us from the real world, and leaving us faceless drones devoid of personality…

Its a beautiful day…but does this guy care?

Geiger, a 20-year-old artist who uses photography as his medium, has lived in various European countries, including England, France, and the Netherlands, and in a span of an eye-awakening two years, he has observed how addicted people are to their phones and gadgets, leaving very little room for anything else in their lives…

…making their phones the be-all and end-all of their existence.
