French photographer and self-proclaimed nomad Ruben Brulat seamlessly fuses human with nature in his series Paths. While traveling on a year-long journey through Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Tibet, Indonesia, Japan, and Mongolia, Brulat asked strangers he encountered along the way if they would surrender themselves to the land beneath them, embracing harsh snow or desert land. A beautifully ephemeral project, Brulat’s encounters were intense experiences between strangers, often ending with a goodbye forever as they departed on separate journeys. Brulat’s subjects disappear into the vast landscapes, reminding us just how small we really are in the grand scheme of things.
