Alone Together

These people are all strangers that I met through dating apps and social media websites.

No romance, sex or relationships involved – just photos.

Exploring the digital age we live in, documenting the behaviour of today’s online society as our reliance on technology and social media becomes more apparent.

As technology within society is impermanent, ever present and ever perpetual, socialising has adapted within modern culture.

This series questions our relationship with technology and social media; has it brought us closer together or isolated us further?
