Ian Ruhter ist ein Fotograf aus Los Angeles. Vor wenigen Wochen veröffentlichte er sein Video zu der Reihe „American Dream“. In diesem erklärt er, wenn auch mit einigem Pathos unterlegt, warum sein Weg zur Fotokunst führte: Nämlich um seine eigene Stimme zu finden!
The American Dream video is based on the
fear of success, this thought is extremely powerful, fear has the
ability to cripple us from pursuing our dreams. The moment I embraced my
dreams it was as if the universe had drawn people to help us and share
their stories. Our goal is to tell the stories of the people who live in
America. Your support is the driving force behind our project. We could
not have done this without you. We have made it this far because you
shared and supported us through our social networking sites. We were
able to connect with the people in this film because of the internet.
Every time you share or like this project it brings us one step closer
to photographing your town, people you know, possibly even you. – Ian Ruther
