This Joe Holmes 'Texters' photography series is one that will definitely provoke viewers to think about their regular textiing habits. Photographing unsuspecting individuals who are deeply absorbed in texting, Holmes has definitely created a unique and captivating collection.

In a world where the majority of people own a phone and text often, it’s no small wonder that Joe Holmes was able to freely capture these avid texters. These text-a-holics enter a zombielike state and only perk up when their phones are out of sight. This covert collection is certainly telling of the hold technology has on society. Tunnel-vision, or rather text-vision ,becomes undeniable in our modern world.
