About Ian Ruhter:

Ian Ruhter is a photographer with a personal artistic mission who has turned his career into a passion for the creation of photographic art using a process dating from the 1850’s. His project “Silver and Light” is getting worldwide attention for both the story and the unique images he is creating.

Ian’s story is one that is reflected in the subjects he photographs, severely dyslexic as a youth he found himself as an outsider challenged by many obstacles. It was his mother’s gift of an old film camera that got him started on a way to express himself and the path to his present project. In his previous career as a snowboarder Ian was a rebel, which helped lead him to his direction as a photographer.

His American Dream series has focused his giant camera in a truck, on a cross section of others with a variety of challenges but presents calm and dignified portraits that honour the subjects and tells their story. The narrative of Ian’s project and subjects are truly inspiring.

Ian’s images of Los Angeles and the Mountains are one of-a-kind studies that are beautiful, mysterious, captivating and mesmerizing all at once.
