Van Turned Into Giant Wet Plate Camera ~ by Photographer Ian Ruhter

Los Angeles-based photographer Ian Ruhter creates amazing photographs using a van that he turned into a gigantic camera. Converting the Van into a massive camera was a two year labour of love.

 Ian uses the collodion wet plate process, first introduced in the 1850s, to produce the 36x24 inch images. Each image is one of a kind and costs $500 to produce,

“This project isn’t about making images. It’s not about creating the world’s largest camera. It’s about doing what you love. If you had been searching your whole life for something you love, what would you be willing to sacrifice?” ~Ian Ruhter

The opening of this Video reminds me of the TV show Breaking Bad. If you Meth lab cooks out there are looking for a legit gig, why not try the collodion process?
