b. 1983, Ireland

We live in a fast-paced, digitally connected world which has experienced an explosion in communications technology over the past decade. With this project, I set out to document people interacting with various mobile communications devices, making photographs in locations where people would traditionally go to meet and socialise. While these technologies purport to bring us closer and connect us, they can in fact have the opposite effect.
