Photographer Ian Ruhter / Silver & Light Vancouver

ian ruhter silver and light vancouver
You might recall, last April I wrote about Ian Ruhter’s incredible project where he took his life savings and turned an old delivery truck into a giant mobile camera. Ruhter designed his camera to produce enormous images with silver and light using an old photographic technique called a wet plate collodion process. Watch the videos here and here.

Last month he was here in Vancouver, with his truck, and a talented crew made up of Lane Power, Madeline Druce, and Will Eichelberger. The team spent an entire month here, driving the truck to random locations, making wet plates, and meeting as many people as they could.

My friend Maurice and I caught up with them in the lower east side as they were making the portrait that Ian (left) is holding in the image above.

A couple days later they invited us to their house and we got to see stacks of images they created while they were here. Take a look below!

Hootsuite Interview

Last week some really friendly folks from Hootsuite came over and interviewed me for their blog (thanks Sam, thanks Brian).

I read somewhere they’re aiming to be the first billion dollar company to stay in Vancouver. Kinda wild! One of their clients is the White House. If you’re bored you can read it, here.

Efterklang in Vancouver

If you live here in Vancouver, you might be somewhere in this photo! This is that night I screened Efterklang’s film “An Island”. I expected a few dozen and hundreds of you showed up!

Well, this Thursday Efterklang is playing at The Biltmore and you should all come! I’m not being paid to promote the show they are just friends of mine making incredible music. I think it would be cool if the Vancouver show was a tour highlight for them. Tickets are only $15.

See you there!
