Imagine melding two polar opposites of American life—the majestic natural beauty of the Grand Canyon with hyper-animated Manhattan. That's exactly what Swiss photographer Gus Petro did in his striking series "Merge," the final component of his three-part project "Empty, Dense, Merge." He used Photoshop to showcase his discovery of the "emptiness and density" he found while traveling through the U.S.
