Portraits of our digital time

This is a series of photographs, that shows people of all ages in darkened rooms, who are watching at displays of their laptops, cellphones, tablets or notebooks. The devices are often not visible for the viewer, but the illuminated faces of the portrayed people are significant signs of their activity. Due to the light of the screens an almost surreal lightning occurs. Together with their body language and their gaze, these are the characteristic signs of our time and our communication behavior.
