Silver & Light: Ian Ruther

Here is a video brought to our attention by First Year Students Bradford Burk and Ian Robinson.  This is an amazing story about photographer Ian Ruhter and his wet plate collodion van.

It is great to see older photographic techniques used in interesting and innovative ways to create beautiful, stunning and inspirational images.

For those that need a break to recharge your creative juices and to put things back into perspective, spend eleven minutes and watch this video!

For more about Ian and the wet plate collodion van watch this video too.
