amazing huge photographic machine
The piece is part of the last spectacular work of the photographer Ian Ruhter. As he states, "a search for the essence of photography through wet plates", although in this case under a little different large format. A work shop, where the truck goes the artist makes a camera and laboratory.

This project was created with the same spirit in which America was founded. Our intentions are to connect everyone with America through the lens of this camera and social networks. We want to tell our story and show our country or city through the photography and people that you know. While we traveled around America and look for people and places to shoot you can follow the track and help us to decide which sites will go after. Join us on our journey through our Facebook to get to be photographed by us.
