The Carnival of Dreams: Wet Plate Artist Ian Ruhter & Actor  Gary Oldman

The Carnival of Dreams is a short film based on the unforeseen events that transpired over a 48 hour period in a magical place called Slab City where Ian Ruhter and Will Eichelberger set out to make the world's largest Ambrotype.



In the midst of this larger 3 year project to photograph and film the community a spontaneous visit by Gary Oldman to Ruhter and our crew in the field revealed something far greater than the process that brought everyone together.

As Oldman and Ruhter focus their cameras on each other the plates unveiled a beautiful friendship. The photographs made also revealed a hidden truth about the people who stand by our side and allow us to see the beauty that's in front of us.

The Carnival of Dreams captures this bond between colleagues, friends, loved ones and soulmates and a process that takes place within this journey.

Carnival of Dreams evolved into collaboration behind-the-scenes among former curator and art consultant Gisele Schmidt in conjunction with the magazine article Build by Louise Salter, Vice President of The Laboratory Arts Collective. Selected photographs by Ruhter and Oldman from their journey are featured in the latest issue of The Laboratory Arts Collective Magazine BUILD. www.laboratoryartscollective.com/build
