Inspired by nights clubbing in San Francisco, the project started out by simply photographing her friends. Not too long after, Ruth Bayer was steadily drawing in a string of volunteers in chemically altered states that make up her latest book.
Implications - Ruth Bayer is analytical about her subjects. "Most have a twinkle in the eye -- it seems like there's an unspoken invitation from the sitter to share the experience, or at least convey it to the viewer." Bayer's excellent captures of that shared experience makes her a photographer to watch in my eyes. Expect to see more from her in the near future.
