Through Ruhter's experience I can imagine a little what the early photographers went through dragging huge cameras and chemicals and hardware with the then most advanced technology. When we now see the spectacular results, results we can readily duplicate, more or less, with far lower resolution, clarity and size using mass-produced instruments, how many of us understand how difficult, difficult, difficult it was. How much time and dedication, how many failures, plates thrown into the scenery in frustration? To continue doing this, you have to love the process and the product. I admire the artist.
