20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
FIXED (Tourist I)

Perhaps there is nothing more insignificant than what you will see. After all, who would dare to photograph subjects caught in the act of staring at the screen of a mobile phone? There is nothing more trivial. It's all set. I force my subjects to stare. It is they who stare. It is they who fix themselves in a space. It is they who are fixed. The screen fix them. The other stares at them. We are all forced to fix them. Until exhaustion, Addicted. From the eternal circuit of fixity.
