This is a contemplative series in which British-born, San Francisco-based artist Richard T. Walker creates a strong juxtaposition between human 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.
The artist combines his love of nature with complex questions about how we as a culture treat our surroundings. By creating a confusing fragmentation of a frame within a frame, the artist urges his viewers to consider how and why the various elements interact. He chooses to present his figures from the back in order to maintain a sense of universality and, ultimately, invites his viewers to explore an emotional connection to each place.
