Is conversation dead? Babycakes Romero’s photos say so. His series “Death of Conversation” catches people in situations when they could be talking to someone beside them but are staring at their phones instead. The black and white images capture London in stark relief and suggest that a tech-bound life is devoid of color in every sense of the word.
