I recently noticed a phonebox near my home that I hadn't seen before. I started seeing more of them around, the modern ones that blend into the street, ignored and abandoned. Mobile phones have made them obsolete, but they remain as a melancholic reminder of the past. Telecom companies are replacing them with electronic posters, but a 2018 court ruling requires local authority permission. These decaying phoneboxes remind us of a time before modern technology, a time of memories and nostalgia. As technology advances, they slowly disappear from our consciousness and the physical world. I realized that they were a disappearing piece of our shared cultural history, and I wanted to capture their essence before they were gone forever.
