French photographer Niko Photographisme explores a world with fully automated humans. His image collection, titled 'The Robot Next Door,' makes for a very realistic depiction of a future that is dominated by an invasively tech-advanced population.
Shooting and editing candid images of his subjects, Niko Photographisme's The Robot Next Door works on multiple symbolic levels. While one builds on the aesthetic of the ever-popular TV series 'Black Mirror' with a doom-like connotation of the inevitable robotization of the human essence, the other expresses the idea that mechanized or not, " we play roles [...] but appearances are often false or deceptive." Either way, the automated human project by Niko Photographisme definitely fits the fears and the fascination of the world with advancements in technologies.
