They are watching us

We are surrounded by “them” more than any time before. They are as close as the screen of my laptop to as far as a billboard on the street. But it didn’t use to be like this,  they were supposed to catch our attention for commercial purposes, but it seems like it is the other way around, as we are the ones being watched. They are manufactured and promoted by no one but ourselves but they are like some unwanted aliens living with us in a parallel reality. They are always present, even when we are unaware of them. 


This photo series is a snap shot of the commercially addicted society we live in. I found NewYork City as a good representative, and candid street photography in black and white format as an appropriate technique to show how advertisements are impacting our daily lives, social interactions, personal connections and individual privacy.
