"This project isn't about making images. It's not about creating the world's largest camera. It's about doing what you love. If you had been searching your whole life for something you love, what would you be willing to sacrifice?"
~Ian Ruhter, from Silver & Light

I can't remember watching something so heartbreakingly gorgeous, unswerving in its emotional sway, inspirational to the point of forcing me to wonder about my current station in life. What am I doing here?

The magic of film. Thank you for reminding me what attracted me to photography in the first place.. and that all is not lost to the digital world - for showing what beauty is possible, when you have a dream!

beautiful photography but wondering about the toxic dumping of chemicals onto the land scape you adored??

Cool.

Love the story and the message of the video. But for whoever decided how to 'market' it - not cool. Yep, I just sat through your entire 9 minute video like an idiot. i thought that sooner or later the naked girl and meth head which started the video would be incorporated into the story - or at the very least be addressed, but no. I guess you expected me to be so overwhelmed and caught up the story that I'd forget?? I mean, it is 9 minutes long. And yea, it was a great story about making art and one that I would usually find amazing - but this was set up under false pretenses. Thinking about unfollowing OnBeing on twitter haha and I never get that annoyed
!!

YOU DID YOU DUG YOU DARED YOU RISKED YOU GREW YOU KNEW YOU CREATED YOU PERSEVERED YOU WON !:)
IM PROUD OF YOU

i held my breath throughout this piece. Ian Ruhter is inspiring.Thank you. I turned my life upside down to follow what I love, taking care of horses, and today this helped me to know that it was worth the upheaval. "The Great work of your life", by Stephen Cope is a perfect read for anyone who thinks about pursuing their passion.
