Let Go of Fear and Find Your Art — Without Failure, We Don’t Know Success

Death Do Us Part from Ian Ruhter : Alchemist on Vimeo.

In six short years, my friend Ian Ruhter lost some of the closest people in his life. This video is about finding the strength to move on from the past. As Ian explains to us “I got to a point where I had to let go of the past in order to move forward into the future. I reached the point where I had to let go, was no other choice. “. This story follows Ian, his assistants, and that same incredible wet plate mobile camera-truck we had here in my Seattle studio on chasejarvisLIVE. Check out the episode here.

“Death Do Us Part is the fear of letting go of our past in order to reach for the future. When we take this leap of faith we decide to let go of our fears. We begin free falling with nothing to hold on to. These are the rare instances that we are actually living in the moment. 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. Become a part of our journey.” -Ian Ruhter

    As usual an interesting blogpost. I love the attitude – Without failure we don not know success. We have to little of that in Sweden and Europe.

    Chase, thank you for posting this. I have been following Ian since his first video about the van, and he continues to drive and inspire me in my creative life. I love that you post stuff like this, and that you introduce folks to other wonderful, creative people. I recently had the opportunity to talk to Chris Jordan in North Carolina, and I had learned about him on your show, Chase Jarvis LIVE.

    Thank you.

    If you don’t try you don’t win. If you don’t fail, you never set a big target in the first place.

    The majority of online Airsoft gun stores are based in California, so shipping may take a while for people who live outside
    this location. To many people are price shopping for homes and don’t think to consider that the market dictates home pricing
    and often a good deal may not be that because of the location. Most people
    save a great deal on the shopping during sale.
