Photographer Ian Ruhter's camera of choice is rather unique, well actually, unique's probably the wrong term to use because how many photographers do you know have converted a truck into a portable wet plate collodion camera? The camera itself is impressive, but the images Ian produces with this particular set-up are even more so. The images he captures are featured in a documentary titled 'Silver & Light'.

The short video looks at the process Ian goes through, which isn't without its problems, to capture these unique images which cost almost $500 each and you can view it below. 

You can keep up-to-date with Ian's projects on his website - and Facebook page
