17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

As a teenager, I really feel the effect that modernity is bringing to us. Don’t get me wrong, I love technology and I can not imagine a world without it, but I’ m also aware of the negative side of it. People are detaching more and more from themselves. We are slowly building walls around us, being fulfilled just by what our Instagram feed is showing to us. We are getting lost in a screen, forgetting what there is outside, losing our capability of knowing who we are. I just wanted to remind the beauty that surrounds us, every day. One reason to look up and have a different view.
