Picture Perfect : Impact Of Technology On Mankind, Revealed Via Images

In this digital era where smartphones and technological devices have become a lifeline, we all have started ignoring the outside world.

To show this addiction with digital devices, Eric Pickergill, a passionate photographer started with a project “Removed”, where he physically removed all the digital devices from pictures he captured of people, whom he met in usual days and everyday moments. Also, accepting the fact that he is also counted among one of them and belong to the same clan. 

He has already been sharing a lot about the psychological and social consequences on individuals and society as a whole. He got this idea when he saw a family in a coffee shop, busy with their respective devices. Where two daughters and their father were continuously looking at their phones, mother with no device was looking outside the window, left isolated. And they all were TOGETHER. He calls it a striking moment which became impossible for him to erase.

Eric always slept with cellphone in his hands. One night when u woke up with a jolt, his phone slipped off his hands and he noticed that the shape of his wrist was exactly in the same as if he is holding the device and scrolling the screen.
He knew what was supposed to be done and decided to start with a project named “Removed”, where all the pictures of random people he meet everyday will be captured but without their lifeline.

Loosing their Childhood. Virtually.
