An incredible short documentary on Ian Ruhter and his work with wet plate photography in a camera that is literally a truck. What I love about this, besides the astounding photographs, is the dedication and investment that he’s poured into this project. The piece above explains a lot about how much of himself he’s put into this, at a cost of “$500 a photograph”. Check out the Facebook page, as he’s touring around the country shooting and wants people to get involved and photographed.

This is photography.

Equally as impressive as the project itself is the video below of captured motion.

Absolutely great stuff. Shelby posted this as well. Just a note: the Facebook link isn’t working.

This is amazing. I absolutely love how the shots turn out. Certainly need to learn more about this type of photography.
