John Ryan Brubaker (he/him) is a visual artist based in West Virginia. He is interested in the peripheries of the photographic process, experimenting with everything from presentation and distribution models to the chemical make up of photographic paper. Often utilizing hybrid forms of photographic media, he builds collections of visual records from his environment, at times using river water, found coal or rainfall to make prints, books and installations. He has exhibited throughout the US and Europe, including at the Arlington Arts Center, the Juliet Museum, the Hirshhorn, Harlan Levey Projects and many others. He has been published by the Virginia Quarterly Review, Ampersand Editions, The Fotomuseum of Antwerp and others.
Since 2011 he splits his time between Brussels, Belgium and Thomas, West Virginia where he is 1/3 of Gradient Projects.
Current Location: Thomas, West Virginia
