Zombie Apocalypse
Project info

This series of photos is part of a long-term project that aims to shine a light on how people look when they stare at handheld devices. A 2014 Pew research survey revealed that nearly 80% of smartphone-using Americans are "generally OK" with the use of devices while waiting in line, while riding public transportation, and while walking down the street. To me, this seems detrimental to society. My hope is that people who see this project will reflect upon how constant "checking" of their devices for updates may be due to addiction, and that those who are addicted will attempt to leave the devices in their bags and pockets while in public.
