Tired of the similarity of the digital age, Ian Ruhter tried to make something completely new. Ian travels the US with a track sized camera that shoot on 1.5 meters wet plates. Both the camera and the photography are amazing. And I find his story and storytelling amazingly inspiring.
Here is the description of the project titled “Silver and 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.#
Thanks for the tip, Zeke.
