25 Tragicomic Images That Reveal Some Dark Truths About Modern Society

We live in an age of smartphone addiction, of social inequality, of money being championed over people. Most of that has been the case throughout history, minus the smartphone addiction. But you could probably substitute that with any popular entertainment of the day.

Still, these images speak particularly to the modern condition we find ourselves in. And they have a gnawing satirical bite, unafraid to put their point across without pulling any punches.

So, while they're powerful they're so very close to the bone that they're sad to behold.

From tackling human greed to our addictions to the realities behind modern industrial farming, these artists' perspectives on the world make for pretty depressing viewing.

There's humor too, of course. Dark, bitter humor. But humor nonetheless.
