Ian Ruther: Silver & Light

I found the video on Ian Ruther’s photography technique to be very intriguing. In the video he recalls looking out a large window and wanting to create a photo that large, and that is just what he did. Making his own humongous camera and film, Ian creates massive images with many times, only one chance to get it right. He doesn’t have the luxury of taking several digital photos and the ability to change film settings, but this adds to the raw and innovative nature of what he’s doing. In the beginning he wasn’t sure if he would be able to do it or if the images would even turn out, but he did what he set out to do and created something beautiful and unique.
