The Death of Conversation

Monday, October 20, 2014


This London based photographer started to snap photos of people in the company of their phones because he believes the art of conversation is dying. Before mobile phones were invented, people had no choice but to interact - however, that is no longer necessary, as we can now all disappear into our screens rather than think of something to say.

Thought-provoking and a dash sad to say the least, wouldn’t you agree? Are you guilty of checking your phone all the time? (I totally am!). What's your stand on it: accurate or a bit exaggerated? xo

P.S: Table phone talk.
P.P.S: Remember this?

It makes me sad to see people being disconnected from each other. Seems that people just don't talk anymore.

It is so true, and I hate to admit, most of the time I'd rather just look at my phone than be forced to interact.

this is so sad. i see it everywhere i go. i make a point on not using my phone in public unless is for looking for directions. i see people crossing the streets or driving or riding bikes while looking down at their phone. so dangerous and reckless.

Ha! I just had a long conversation about the death of conversation wtih two teacher friends over the weekend. We were mostly bitching about the young generation, but we also turned the mirror on ourselves and fully admitted to checking our phone. It sucks and I try to be really mindful to not look at it or get distracted. Great series! xo, Katie

This is so true! I do have a rule about not using phones at meal times though and that helps to set limits!

I noticed just how significant the cell phone plight was when my husband and I traveled internationally and had to ditch our phones. The whole town was talking. Took us awhile to figure out that it was because no one had their cells out. Sad sad sad, but boy was it a better trip because of that fact.
