We trail our private lives into the public sphere on a daily basis. In cafes across the country, where we pay bills, file taxes, play videogames, and watch movies openly, unashamed by our complete exposure. The growth of portable electronics and cellular technology has eased these tasks and long-distance communications at the price of hindering conversation with those at the table next to us.
We dread being alone, yet technology makes our solitude acceptable if we are experiencing it amongst others.
I strive to capture the mood, the air stirring around the seemingly lonesome souls in the very public place of the cafe.
