People are calling him ‘Babycakes Romero’ and one thing is for sure: he definitely has a lot to say! And only photos will do the trick. His collection of photos under the name ‘The Death of Conversation’ definitely says more than his words ever could. As you watch these images flash before your eyes, you see something quite unsettling that really makes you think twice.
On the streets of London…
The artist took this collection of photos on the streets of London. While pacing the streets, something struck him. When his attention was drawn to this particular type of behaviour, the photographer reached for his camera and shot everything he saw.
Colleagues having ‘cigarette breaks’, friends in a restaurant, people on the train, nothing escaped his keen eye.
A very unique sense of awareness
His observation of society nowadays is a bit worrying. The view he provides through his images makes us think twice about how we live. And why? Because this behaviour has become so normal and every day that it can even be called an obsession.
It’s almost become so natural that we can forget we’re doing it. And that’s the point of these photos! However, the message they send can also be a bit concerning. We could even imagine ourselves in their shoes.
The ‘horrible’ thing about 'Babycakes Romero's' work isn’t what you see in the photo since there’s nothing that unusual there, but instead, it’s what these photos represent: ‘The Death of Conversation’, as the name of the collection indicates.
