Abstract


Mobile phone use and social media have become the norm in modern societies around the world. In an attempt to connect with the world out there, people sometimes neglect present time and immediate environments. For some, this is a way 'in' and for others a way 'out'.  This photographic ethnography investigates the contradiction between connection and disconnection in people's desire to maintain relationships, stay informed or be entertained.
