Soul-Sucking Photos Show How Phone Addiction Is Stealing Our Souls
French photographer Antoine Geiger creates photos of people having their faces sucked into their cellphones. The project, titled SUR-FAKE, touches on issues of technology dependance and addiction: “It is placing the screen as an object of ‘mass subculture’, alienating the relation to our own body, and more generally to the physical world.”
“Nothing was staged. I went out and captured reality,” Antoine told Bored Panda.
Antoine Geiger is a 20-year-old photographer who’s lived in England, France and the Netherlands. Over the last two years, he’s had four exhibitions, and been mentioned or published in print ten times.
UPDATE: Geiger’s work is very similar to that of Max Cavallari, another artist concerned with the influence of technology on our daily lives.
