Addressing the relationship between man and nature, the Us Through This photo series embraces surreality in order show the melding of the two. Yet man more than melds, he almost disappears into the desert landscape in the background. This is achieved through the use of a photo of the actual landscape he poses in that has been propped up on a stand. The man stands just behind it to make it appear as though he is slowly disappearing.

Shot by photographer Richard T. Walker, the Us Through This photo series invites people to consider the repercussions of nature taking back its territory. Or, more accurately, the strength of the land that has been able to fend off any developments. Us Through This also encourages thoughts of harmony.
