Even though we had crappier phones with crappier cameras, most of us still loved to document our not so crappy lives on our phones. New York artist Kyle M. F. Williams bought 44 Razr phones on eBay and found that “half of them still had texts, sexts, pics, and vids.” He put them all together in a book.
It’s funny how much of a digital trail we leave behind on our phones, especially phones that don’t have a clear and easy way in getting wiped. Williams says:
I bet nobody actually knew how to wipe these things. It takes like 10 steps to delete a photo in that shitty menu system. Who’s gonna do that for every sexy image you have in ‘My Pix & Flix’.
So Williams found that phones still had ‘personal’ text messages and hilarious pictures and put them all together in a book called Razr. The phones originated from an electronics repair shop out of Texas for only £60. A lot of laughs for 60 quid. Check out more of the lost pictures at BuzzFeed and Williams’ book. [Amazon via BuzzFeed]
