“American Dream” by Ian Ruhter

American Dream by photographer Ian Ruhter
If you are going to watch one video today, this is the one. Earlier this year I posted about photographer Ian Ruhter’s incredible “Silver & Light” project (see it here). Ian built the world’s largest wet plate camera inside of a truck and now he travels around creating these insanely beautiful large scale images using silver and light. Each one costs him about $500 a pop to produce.

“American Dream” gives us a small glimpse into Ian’s travels so far, meeting people, and hearing their incredible stories as he shoots their portraits. Inspiring stuff! Watch below!

To fully appreciate this, you need to watch the original film, “Silver & Light”. This one might have given you the impression that the process of producing these images is simple – it’s not!

    Don’t let money of stuff limit you, but maybe start off by buying a set of profoto lights. I thought that shot of the gear was lingering a bit too long.

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
