It’s not uncommon for someone to see loads of people on their phones trying to get work done, perusing Facebook/Instagram, etc.–and that’s what photographer Enrico De Conti is trying to put forward in his project So Connected Yet So Lonely. Enrico is a Berlin based portrait and street photographer; and in his project he is trying to convey how people are completely absorbed by technology.
Enrico got into photography at a early age. “I think I was about 8 years old. I didn’t take it much seriously, in fact I went to study at the academy of fine arts in Milan, then I moved to LA to be a filmmaker.” says Enrico in an email to the Phoblographer. “In 2011, bored of my job in film production, I started assisting a celebrity photographer, Mike Ruiz. From there there was no turning back, I have been photographing portraits for business and street for passion.”
