scenes between man + nature – ‘paths’ by ruben brulat

searching for a narrative constructed only by the randomness of the encounter, photographer ruben brulat has traveled from europe to
asia by land only, through iraq, iran, on-to afghanistan, tibet until indonesia, japan and mongolia to complete his latest works titled ‘paths’.
performing sometimes in welcoming sand, sometimes in the harsh snow, the series of images capture a concurrence between man and nature -
as they let themselves go, opening up to their senses.

 

embracing everything that surrounds them, ‘the bodies of people become friends, performing – not without difficulties – leaving wounds, marks,
and souvenirs from a time before heading towards different paths, (after sharing
one for a while)’, says brulat. ‘the bodies of these people become
a part of the accidental and dramatic landscapes, like the trees,
the rocks or the black sands of gunung bromo.’
