Mobile Phone Overuse in Photography.

Many people like candid shots. Street photography documents what’s happening on the streets.
And one day you realize that there’s something common in your random shots from the streets of different countries.
You realize that it’s impossible to imagine a modern human being without… a mobile phone. This is the  phenomena of mobile phone overuse.

“It used to be that we imagined that our mobile phones would be for us to talk to each other. Now, our mobile phones are there to talk to us.” (Sherry Turkle)
Monte Carlo (the Principality of Monaco)
Young and old, women and men, smiling and pensive… people with the mobile phones.
“From the boardroom to the bedroom, we're connected 24/7, yet loneliness is at an all-time high. More people are reaching for mobile devices than for the hand of someone in need. Where did our humanity go?” (Elizabeth Kapu'uwailani Lindsey)
Where did our humanity go and where will our humanity go? Isn’t it the loneliness when a young couple doesn’t communicate to each other: doesn’t talk to each other, doesn’t hold each other’s hands…  People allowed the mobile phones to take away their freedom…

“The mobile phone is used from when you get up in the morning and is often the last thing you interact with at night.” (Jan Chipchase)
