CreativeMornings/Vancouver with Ian Ruhter
Friday, April 5, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM (PDT)
SPEAKER: Ian Ruhter
Ruhter really is both photographer and alchemist. When for him the craft of photography evolved into something less personal and true, even vapid and uninspiring, he sought a new way to approach his craft, and he found his future in the past. By using a very old approach to photography, he is now exploring stories, people and places though the lens of the world’s largest portable camera and records life using a wet plate process from the 1850's. His project Silver and Light is a risky exploration of inspiration, passion and creative process, and his videos have become an Internet sensation.The project tells many stories both in print (metal plates) and the videos that offer compelling insight into peoples’ lives, fears and success. Ian will share how how, by losing his way and journeying back to the mid-nineteenth century where one paints with silver and light, and how this revelation in which he embraced the past while utilizing the technological advances of the future, allowed him to find the component—and creative fulfillment—he was searching for.
