French photographer Antoine Geiger has created a stunning series of photographs depicting people’s faces sucked into the screens of their mobile phones.

The project entitled SUR-FAKE powerfully comments on the scary addiction people have with technology nowadays, an addiction that not only alienates them from one another but also from their bodies and the physical world in general. What appear to be casual snapshots of people taking a selfie and browsing their phones while sitting, become dark, horror-film-like senarios under Geiger’s digital paintbrush – every single one of the photographer’s models has their face sucked by their mobile phones and lost their identity.

Powerful, yet horrifying, SUR-FAKE is a warning message that our need for constant hyper-connectivity that has turned our phones into extensions of our hands, is sucking our souls and distorting human relationships – and it’s not going to stop unless we do something about it.
