Capturing The American Dream On A Wet Plate Truck

Ian Ruhter is not only a talented photographer, he is also an incredible story teller. If you recall the story, Ian set out on a mission to capture the spirit of America in a way no photographer has done before – In a wet plate camera built inside of a truck.

Today, Ian shares a bit more of his personal story intertwined with four other stories (and portraits) from LA that connect to Ian’s inspirational story.

Here is how Ian describes the movie:

“The American Dream video is based on the fear of success, this thought
is extremely powerful, fear has the ability to cripple us from pursuing
our dreams. The moment I embraced my dreams it was as if the universe
had drawn people to help us and share their stories. Our goal is to tell
the stories of the people who live in America”#
