Unique Pictures of New York Town Placed in the Grand Canyon

Lithuanian-born, Switzerland-based photographer Gus Petro took a trip to America this year, in search of something new, and made two contrasting stops—the Grand Gorge and New York City—that has motivated his three-part sequence known as Empty, Heavy, Combine. In Empty, Petro catches the vacant scenery giving a sense of peace and isolation. On the other hand, Heavy provides the populated city scenery of the Big Apple that seemed almost entirely man made and hard.

The most interesting and final sequel of the three, Combine, brings together the vast bleakness of the Grand Gorge with the vibrant solidity of New York Town. Basically, the sequence places the town that never rests within the deep hollows of the Grand Canyon. The photographer manipulates his scenery images to create a new world were the two opposites exist together in close areas.

The stunt took place at Atlantic City's popular venue Steel Pier, where trained horses took the plunge up to four times a day and seven days a week.
