Raw and edgy, random and yet real. Phonebook
collects fragments of text messages and cell phone images, each of which have their own fascinating story to tell. Pieced together, they offer a captivating insight in to the life of CB Smith. He is an established photographer, and yet these pictures were never intended for publication. They were never planned; no poses, no lighting, no makeup. Although Smith is a professional photographer who knows the medium, it is obvious that this is not a typical photography book. The improvised shots that were taken without any premeditation are accompanied by small texts that offer just enough context to pique your curiosity, and tell an unintentional story. Phonebook
represents the fusion of technology and 'virtual memory' with human recollection, thus providing a new and unique account of life in the new millennium.
