Every Path is Viable by John Ryan Brubaker

"This project uses the unpredictable nature of the photographic process to suggest the experience of looking in multiple directions simultaneously. Each image is the result of four exposures, shot from a fixed vantage point, and captured on a single frame of film. The result is then printed across a series of smaller sheets and combined by hand to recreate the final piece.
Each photograph is informed by the unique architecture, culture, language, and visual characteristics of the city in which it was taken. Yet, they are not meant to be representations of particular places, as is so often the case in photography. Rather, they are intended to be vehicles for getting lost in thought or contemplation.
These pieces were made to serve as reminders that there is infinite potential in whatever course one chooses to pursue, and that at any moment there are a multitude of paths available."
