Euphus Ruth

Fall, 2014

Euphus Ruth, Jr was born in Texas but raised in Bruce, Mississippi from age two. He is a photographer living in the Mississippi Delta focusing exclusively on wet collodion and film processes, from visualizing the image through the ground glass to the final print or plate in the darkroom or mobile darkbox. Euphus says, “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. I am inspired by most anything old, and my images since 2006 are made with wooden view cameras.”
