The We Never Look Up Tumblr documents a recent phenomenon ushered in five years ago with the introduction of the first ever iPhone by Apple: the perpetually connected individual. With the Internet constantly at our fingertips, it has become almost habitual to see hordes of individuals with their heads' down before, during and even after commuting.
