These Images Show The Shocking Reality Of Societys Addiction To Technology


At first glance, it just looks like an innocuous crowd jostling for position to take the perfect picture.

But do a double take, and youll see that this thought-provoking photo serves as a prescient reminder of societys endemic addiction to technology.

Taken by Boston Globe photographer John Blanding at the premier of Black Mass in Massachusetts, the photo went viral after one Twitter user circled the only woman in the crowd not holding a smartphone.

While the woman was praised on social media for taking in the moment, the picture shows the extent to which mobile phones dominate our world.

Throughout the past two decades, the integration of technology into every aspect of our lives has accelerated at an unprecedented rate.

But from mental illness to environmental damage, these shocking images show the consequences of humankinds technology obsession.
