Town & Country

Robert Walker

Robert Walker has photographed New York City for 25 years, focusing primarily on Times Square. His pictures capture a new urban reality – the bewildering media environment of visual overload and mixed meanings. It is a world where the individual is caught in a seamless, perpetual trompe l’oeil. To counter this, his images of nature, as a contrived ideal, show us a botanical garden where plants and ponds exude the artificial hyper-reality of a children’s book.
