Unnerving Photos Depicting Our Obsession with Digital Devices

He depicts this by altering people’s faces as they gaze into their phones, their bodies poised to be sucked into their devices. Geiger doesn’t stage his images, he captures the world around him — many people so involved with their devices, they don’t even notice him snapping a photo right in front of them. Other times he uses a telephoto lens. The images are part of Geiger’s Sur-Face project, “placing the screen as an object of ‘mass subculture,’ alienating the relation to our own body, and more generally to the physical world.”
