A trip to the Design Museum in Kensington yesterday gave me the opportunity to photograph some of my fellow visitors in the foyer area. It soon became clear that the majority were on their phones. My first reaction was how sad, the museum is a great place, not only the exhibitions but the architecture of the place as well, and here they were glued to their phones. But after observing a bit longer I realised they had taken in the wonder of the place and were probably now sharing their experiences with loved ones, family or friends wherever they are in the world.
Here are some of the images I took and I invite you to make your own mind up about whether you think they are a sad reflection of modern society or the opposite, and show social we are.
