“Silver & Light” – Ian Ruhter on Wet Plate PhotographyBY Ben Revzin on April 5, 2012
Ian Ruhter is a photographer who decided to take his life savings and create his own wet plate camera which he calls the “Time Machine” It’s happens to be one of the world’s largest cameras because he converted his UPS sized van into a moving camera. In the video he discusses his style, technique and his motivation for it all. Most importantly he talks about how he keeps on going even after failing. It’s an incredible documentary and is extremely inspirational.
