I’ve been thinking about this photo for years. It seemed so odd to see this gondolier in Venice talking on his cell phone. Gondoliers are a holdover from another era – one without mobile phones. Ever since I shot this in 2004, I’ve kept eyes peeled for mobile phone anachronisms, times when cells just don’t belong. I call the series Disconnected. More to come.
Have any great shots of someone on a cell phone? Send it my way and I’ll post it.
