With all the photography posted here, this video should fit right in but that said, I’ve never seen anything like it before. Ian Ruhter creates large-format images with a pinhole camera-inspired van conversion. His wet plate photography uses nothing but inspiration, silver and light. It’s a long watch but damn, is it worth it:

“This project was created with the same spirit that america was founded on. Our intentions are to connect everyone in america through the lens of this camera and social networking sites. We can’t do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know. As we travel around america looking for people and places to shoot you will be able to keep track of where we are going and help us decide where we go next. Join us in our journey by liking our facebook to get yourself photographed by us.”
