Removed: Photographer Removes Phones From His Photos To Show How Terribly Addicted We’ve Become
“American photographer Eric Pickersgill removed the smartphones and digital devices from his portraits of everyday life. The project “Removed” aims to show our addiction to technology and hyper-connectivity, and Pickersgill knows that he’s also amongst the addicted.
The photographer was inspired by a chance encounter in a New York cafe. “Family sitting next to me at Illium café in Troy, NY is so disconnected from one another,” Pickersgill writes in his notes from that day. “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.”
He achieved the surreal effect in his photos by asking strangers and friends to remain in position, removing their cellphones, and then taking the shot.”
That’s about the last place to have a cell phone when there are 2 of you.
That what so many call family time nowadays.
SAD. They aren’t spending quality time here.
Now THAT IS SAD

I love the internet and there are times I am on it when Danny is home and not in his computer room. I try and LIMIT those moments.
I work really hard at it.
We would never have our phones etc on at the table. Or with anyone else.
