Dörr and Kala call the project The Self Promenade, and it’s something of an anthropological study of contemporary culture. The series cheekily highlights the way smartphones often interrupt how people experience the world around them. The photos capture the various ways people contort themselves to get the “perfect” shot, often oblivious to how strange or silly they look. Many people go to great lengths to capture the ultimate Insta-moment, yet pay little attention to their surroundings.
