On the wall, Mission Beach, San Diego, California, 2010

This man stands on the wall of the Mission Beach Boardwalk, but instead of savoring the view of the sea at sunset, he intently studies the screen of a cellular telephone. This image chronicles our dependence on cellular technology, and demonstrates how it can ensnare us, perhaps distracting us from enjoying the beauty and spontaneity of a very special time and place. Is what we see on a screen of a cell phone more significant than the beach we intended to enjoy? That is the question this image asks the viewer.
