Children’s Vacant Stares While Watching TV Are Captured in Donna Stevens’ Photo Series
- Caroline Kurze
Photographer Donna Stevens created the series ‘Idiot Box’ documenting children vacantly staring at todays ever present black screens of the TV. Donna Stevens hopes to explore the darker side of our love for technology with these images. Shooting children watching TV represents the co-dependent yet contradictory relationship we all share with technology and the media.
Donna Stevens states: “Should we exhibit more caution about the role of technology in our children’s lives? Is our techno-paranoia warranted? No matter what gadgetry we may possess and blame for our undoing, do our problems still just remain human?”
