Yosemite captures with the worlds largest wet plate collodion camera by Ian Ruhter
My name is Ian Ruhter. Two years ago I created a project called Silver & Light. In this film I attempted to capture images in Yosemite Valley with the worlds largest wet plate collodion camera but suffered a devastating failure.

My greatest failure in life came when I lost the ability to believe in my own dreams. It had taken a year and a half to return to Yosemite after enduring one of my most heartbreaking experiences. In an unexpected twist of fate I regained the courage to try again after seeing the world through a child’s eyes.

Since the release of the Silver & Light film we have accomplished more than we ever thought possible. We could have never made it this far without the support of people like you.
I hope you enjoy it.
