Incredible short documentary featuring a camera built into a large van, which shoots using the 160 year old wet plate method.
Silver & Light is a short documentary about American photographer Ian Ruhter‘s journey with his large-format camera – a camera so large, it’s built into the back of a van, and it shoots onto wet plates instead of film. It’s an amazing video, showcasing a lost method of photography as well as one man’s extreme passion for the art form. We especially like the introduction of the film and its obvious correlation between drug addiction and an addiction to the darkroom. Brilliant.
