Lonely Window


Digital interfaces have totally changed how we perceive and interact with the outside world. It’s taught us new ways to communicate without physically seeing or speaking to one another. Through its digital twilight glow, the screen becomes a window, opening to a new world while simultaneously introducing a new kind of loneliness.

Lonely Window explores the darker side effects of omnipresent modes of virtual communication; a new brand of loneliness specific to the digital age that has transformed the screens all around us into barrieres instead of portals to the world beyond. The men and women photographed are entranced by the screens in front of them, so concentrated that they are absent from the physical reality around them and don’t notice that digital technology has invaded every corner of their homes
