Jani Lappalainen: #phonbies 2. - 12.1.2017

Jani Lappalainen's first photo exhibition #phonbies. The exhibition is based on a street photography project described in 2014-2016, in which people and mobile devices play the main role.

#phonbies is documentation of how the way we travel, wait, and spend time has changed with the proliferation of mobile devices. It feels like we are fleeing all the time from the surrounding

of reality by pressing our gaze toward the dimension that opens on the touch screen. At first, such situations may seem somewhat unnatural to an outsider and perhaps

negative, but a deeper examination of the situations brings a certain kind of intimacy and storytelling to them.
