Walter's photographs deploy layers of irony. Her ad-hostile pictures mimic the very formula advertisements use—she often works with lenticulars, photos whose appearance changes when you look at them from different angles, and in many of her photographs she plays the part of each subject to expose the stereotypes that populate the world of commercials. "I'm interested in how ads, technology, and consumerism are changing our lives," Walter says. "We are becoming products of our products, being suffocated by our materials."

Walter discusses society's relationship to images and much more with filmmaker Stephen Blauweiss.
