Silver & Light – Ian Ruhter

Ian Ruhter is a true artist behind the camera. If you follow us closely, you will remember watching this, having seen something similar before here on ShredOn Mag already. Last year ago Ian Ruhter got involved into Foursquares „Wet Plate“ project, for which a 5 short section video gathering has been produced featuring different riders.

What you’ll see here is a pioneering photographic journey into Ian’s personal project. The process of making a Wet Plate Collodion photo has to be done on location, which requires a makeshift laboratory. Each image is then created by mixing collodion, iodizes, bromides, ether, alcohol, silver nitrate, ferrous sulfate and acids while applying them to a metal or glass plate. The final product is a one-of-a-kind original that cannot be matched by any other photographic process of our day.

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.„- Ian Ruhter
