Social media and human evolution: an unexpected twist

My entry for the Zeiss Photography Awards 2019. With the competition theme of ‘Seeing Beyond: The Unexpected’, this series takes a conceptual look at the unexpected impact of social media on the evolution of human society. The images depict a future where screen time has fully passed into the world of addiction, where Likes, Comments and Shares have become distorted into a currency, and where the anonymous figure continues to abuse freedom of speech as an excuse to post hateful content without consequence.
