Gary,
That is some serious joinery. Looks like one of my edge glue joints from early in my woodworking days. Just kidding!

It could be photoshopped. But he also could have inlayed a piece of wood of a different grain orientation on the upper right hand corner of the top block to make the illusion that there is a block behind the closer block. That paired with a specific camera angle completes the illusion.

I would be disappointed id the answer answer is as simple as photoshopping a photo

This technique might come in handy if you needed a bench that also served as a lamp post :)
