Photographer Eric Pickersgill’s REMOVED project has gone viral. Like thousands of others, I first saw his work online–and it haunted me.
The project dramatically altered his career, landed him on the stage of a TEDx talk, and has reignited the conversation about our relationships to our cell devices.
Amidst the whirlwind, Eric graciously sat down for a conversation on The PhotoTellers. Today you’ll hear the story behind a Photographer with a large format camera who captures us without our portable devices.
“A common theme in my photography IS PHOTOGRAPHY.” -Eric Pickersgill
