When I first started this project and I learned I had to complete an entire photo essay. I had an initial plan to capture images and photos that expressed the lack of focus on school and more of an emphasis on social media with teenagers.
I quickly learned that my outcome would be very different than my original plan. When I began shooting I found many great moments that symbolized more than just a teen on social media. I saw unique and different view of things through the lens of the camera.
I soon learned that many the photos I was taking were beginning to tell a story of how teenagers were obsessed with their phones and how their phones caused a lot of them to lose focus from their school work.
I began to notice that their phones were their first priority, even though they were in class and suppose to be listening to their teacher.
They were not focused on learning or school work, because their minds were so far gone through the screens of their phones. No matter if it was a text, call, or some type of social media.
