Photographs by John Ryan Brubaker.
Maps for Getting Lost is a series of photographic books made on exploratory walks through urban environments. They are an investigation of the process of travel without destination.
Each book or chapter chronicles a single journey, often based on absurd or errant methods of navigation. These include using a map of Brussels to cross the city of Rome, following heights of buildings or patterns in sidewalks and moving only against the flow of street traffic.
