Ian Ruhter is a Los Angeles-based photographer that creates massive wet plate photographs using a giant camera van. You might say why is this on our site? Well, because it’s F••kin cool. That’s it. It’s our site and we can feature whatever the hell we want. Watch the below and see what we mean…
SILVER & LIGHT
This project was created with the same spirit that america was founded on. Our intentions are to connect everyone in america through the lens of this camera and social networking sites. We can’t do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know. As we travel around america looking for people and places to shoot you will be able to keep track of where we are going and help us decide where we go next. Join us in our journey by liking our facebook to get yourself photographed by us. An extra special thanks to Brandon Rein, Scotty Hoffman and Trevor Atwater.
WHEN DREAMS COLLIDE
In the process of preparing the time machine, I had no idea this would become one of the most extraordinary journeys to date. It would propel me into the future where I meet Chase Jarvis, one of the greatest photographers of all time. It would then send me back in time to meet with my old friend, Peter Line, the best snowboarder of this era. All of a sudden I found myself in the present, making a picture of Ishmael Butler from the Diggable Planets. I had travelled the way you would in a dream, taking me backward into the future. A future where you paint with silver and light.
