The majority of us understand that we are totally connected to our smartphones. It is something that we lost a battle with a long time ago and don’t even think about now.
That being said, these photos are pretty impressive, showing how smartphones are truly destroying our lives.
These photos do that by simply removing the technological devices from the photos. Each one shows the solitude that children feel when they feel separated from their parents by these devices.
It separates couples, even on their wedding day, and it corrupts important children’s relationships including siblings.
Even though it’s essentially impossible to fix the way smartphones have taken over the world of our children today, seeing these photos, maybe we can do something about the next generation.
Maybe we can learn from these photos and see the terror and destruction for what it really is instead of something to smile at and not worry about.
Technology separates us so let’s use it to pull us back together again after a world of pain and solitude starts to become the norm. These photos speak that in volumes.
