Known for his poignant artistic endeavors, Lucas Zimmermann has revealed a bedroom photography series that expertly reveals the changes to nighttime routines that technology has brought about.

The artist used different young adults as his subjects -- some single and some in relationships -- to reveal his message. The bedroom photography shows the moments, minutes or hours before the subjects fall asleep and how they spend those hours -- on their cellphones like most of us often are. Where reading, talking to loved ones or watching TV used to be the norm before bedtime, now it is the use of cellphones that is most common.

This photography series was created to make a statement about the disruptions, both positive and negative, that smartphones have brought to people's daily routines.
