Ian Ruhter is one photographer who has been pursuing the limits of photography, constantly searching for the next level in artistic expression. He is always finding time for his projects, even while traveling and shooting Andreas with the Forum and Foursquare pros. His latest endeavor, the Wet Plate Project, takes on the exotic, and entirely old-school, collodion process of shooting and then developing film directly onto a sheet of metal. Shooting the action and then developing right in the field is painstaking and dangerous, which is probably the reason why this photographic process has never been used before in snowboarding. ESPN contributor Jesse Huffman recently sat Ruhter down to talk about the Wet Plate Project. To read more from the interview with Ian online visit espn.go.com.
