Digital Isolation

Coco Amardeil’s Hello, It’s Me series is a searing portrait of adolescence – seen through the glow of smartphones. Alone, staring down at the screen, the characters are lost within a private world, reaching out to unknown sources, fixated on the cold white light.

Deep, dramatic backdrops connect the characters amongst a variety of landscapes – both natural and urban. In Kandioura, the protagonist faces away from iPhone X advertisements, acting as an extension of the billboards. The sentiment is powerful, and beautifully executed.
