Euphus Ruth 

Euphus Ruth, Jr. was born in Texas but was raised in Bruce, Mississippi from age two. He is a photographer living in the Mississippi Delta focusing exclusively on wet collodion and film processes. He enjoys the complete photographic process from visualizing the image through the ground glass to the final print or plate in the darkroom or mobile darkbox. "My love of black and white photography began by looking at old photos from my Mom's Kodak Brownie, which was kept in a box under the couch of our family home. Since my teens I have usually had a camera nearby and after living in Greenville for awhile my love of photography ripened. I am inspired by most anything old. Most of my images since 2006 are made with wooden view cameras with antique & modern lenses praticing the 19th century wet collodion process. My earlier work was on large format film contact printed on Kodak Azo paper. In 2014 I plan to make wet collodion glass negatives for contact printing."
