Caught In the Act of Texting

Photographer Joseph Holmes, in his series "Texters," turns something we see everyday—people just tapping away at the phones—into works of art. Shot over a two-month period, they're like little slices of life.

What's funny is, given all the things smartphones can do, they may not even be texting. I wonder what these people are really doing. For instance, this man could very well be texting, lost while his bubbles escape him.
