// What is fundamentally in this system is self-knowledge. You see, if without resonance nothing happens, if there are no echoes you can't hear anything. And that's why we are all so fascinated with recording things, taking photographs, writing them down and above all remembering, its a form of resonance. Because you see, if you don't remember anything, you don't know you are there.

Based on who this person is I knew I would scrutinize this image far more than any other portrait that I had ever made. During this project "The Making of a Celebrity Portrait," it redefined how I view celebrities. It made me question if celebrity culture influenced us so greatly that we want to be portrayed like them. In a world that revolves around social networking and selfies I started wondering what these images really say about us.
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN. I’m asking you to include a photograph of yourself for this project. The idea is to collect many images so we can create one picture of who we really are. On Instagram, #iamthecelebrity with a portrait of you. Follow @ian_ruhter and @Profotoglobal for project updates. All month long we’ll be cataloguing and commenting on these images. Once this is done we’ll create the final project—stay tuned for updates!
My greatest failure in life came when I lost the ability to believe in my own dreams. It had taken a year and a half to return to Yosemite after enduring one of my most heartbreaking experiences. In an unexpected twist of fate I regained the courage to try again after seeing the world through a child’s eyes. Since the release of the Silver & Light film we have accomplished more than we ever thought possible. We could have never made it this far without the support of people like you.
Nick Pooch puts out his first full length video part. Enjoy this collection of shots filmed all over the world, such as Japan, Lithuania, Canada and all over the USA.
