Disturbing Photos of People Getting Sucked Into Their Phone Screens

Comment

Photographer Antoine Geiger has put together a strange photo series titled SUR-FAKE. Each Photoshopped image shows people in public having their faces sucked into the screens they’re staring at.

The project “places the screen as an object of ‘mass subculture,’ alienating the relation to our own body, and more generally to the physical world,” writes Geiger. “I wanted to come back to the idea of these faked identities, over-exposed, sucked by the digital gulf that breaks the relation to ‘real’, to bring back a self-focused image of the individual.”

“What interests me in this texture of sucked faces, is the the over-exposure gradually allows a very organic dimension, as well as digital, to render something quite disturbing.”
