For several years I’ve been photographing payphones. As sometimes happens with a documentary filmmaker, what started as a simple hobby evolved into a full-blown project. But rather than organizing my material into a traditional linear story, Instagram has become the medium for this ongoing exploration of the rapidly disappearing public phone in Los Angeles. Unless noted, all photos and videos are shot by myself on my Pixel 2/3 smart phone – adding a deliciously ironic subtext to the entire project.
