Eric Pickersgill calls the series, Removed, and let me just warn you…it’s deep. Eric is a photographer from ready…North Carolina and he created the original Removed series in his home state between 2014 and the present.

Just think about it, our phones are with us ALL THE TIME. When we are grocery shopping, watching a movie, taking a run, at the amusement park and even while we go to sleep. These photos are kind of eye-opening in realizing how much our cellular devices consume our lives.

Personally, I think these photos just show that sometimes we should just put our phones away and enjoy life around us. You can see all the photos here.
