Juxtapositions of Desert Landscapes, Photos and a Man

Us Through This is a contemplative collection from British-born, San Francisco-based artist Richard T. Walker. The artist creates a strong juxtaposition between man and nature. Within each composition, a calm desert scene is interrupted by a human figure, and that figure is then interrupted by a photograph of a segment of the surrounding landscape.

Walker says: “As long as I can recall I have found the landscape of the USA particularly compelling,” explains Walker. “This was primarily initiated by an interest in its representation on film and the role it played in building upon the characteristics within a given story. I was intrigued by how the landscape seemed to adopt the role of metaphor and symbol, moving stories in ways that seemed to speak to something larger than the given context. It added drama in very particular ways that came to seem quintessentially American.”
