Our world today is largely technology-driven. And so are we. Smartphones and tablets have become a regular in households around the globe. We’re so attached to these devices that we could even consider them our new found family members. After all, they live (and breathe) with us. These ‘companions’, however, are a cause for concern. Nomophobia, short for ‘no mobile-phone phobia’, is a burgeoning ...

Nomophobia - The fear of being out of mobile phone contact

The term, an abbreviation for "no-mobile-phone phobia", was coined during a study by the UK Post Office who commissioned YouGov, a UK-based research organisation to look at anxieties suffered by mobile phone users. The study found that nearly 53 percent of mobile phone users in Britain tend to be anxious when they "lose their mobile phone, run out of battery or credit, or have no network coverage". The study found that about 58 percent of men and 48 percent of women suffer from the phobia, and an additional 9 percent feel stressed when their mobile phones are off.

With this photo i tried to create a sense of isolation so it would be more fitting to the phobia. 'Fear of loss of mobile phone contact' I think this image succeeds in showing the phobia because it is clear the phone is broken and unable to use.
