The Wet Plate Photography Alchemist

This is a project that takes you back to the beginning of photography. Or since the ascent of digital, doesn’t everyone around you have the basically same camera with similar signature? So Ian Ruther went out and built a camera that no one has. If you’d had found what you really love to do, could you resist?

Says Ian:

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.

If this doesn’t make you want to get out and shot, what will? Even though I for myself am glad for not having to deal with those chemicals anymore…
