PHOTOGRAPHS by Ruth Neubauer

I discovered my love for taking pictures in 1981 when I bought my first 35 mm camera, a Canon A-1. By 2007 I began to work with a Canon G-7 digital camera and happily discovered my way of seeing remained intact.

I never set out to photograph anything in particular nor did I learn technique. Rather, unaware, I continue to find myself captivated by the unexpected and compelled by texture, light form, and detail. All my pictures reflect what is simply there to be seen.

Fixed in a moment of time still -life photographs present us with the mystery of what came before and what may happen next. For me they suggest a mood and evoke questions, as I hope they will for you.

I believe that my profession as a psychotherapist has enhanced my appreciation of all things seen and unseen known and unknown.

“Seldom Seen” represents my photographic and personal journey. Looking in from outside - looking out from inside - and everything in-between - liminal space. What I find is that the deeper in I go, the more abstract the images and the less attached they are to time or place. They are simply what I see at the moment.

"A modern camera can produce a good photograph....but art --now that is another matter. Your work is art... ...please quote me on your website. I would be honored."

-Joe Miller, Artistic Director and Curator of the Miller Center for Photographic Arts, Virginia

"Waiting rooms and consulting rooms are liminal spaces. Ruth's photographs have made my psychotherapy office a place I experience as healing in its own right."

-Christine Erskine, MSW, LICSW, Washington, DC

"...Ruth is a distinguished psychotherapist, musician, and photographer. She has exhibited in Maryland, Virginia, and Colorado. Her work exudes emotion: sometimes soothing...mysterious, sometimes reminiscent of Buddhism."

-Steve Passman, Juror - Vienna Photographic Society, Virginia

" We have three of Ruth's photographs...Her eye for natural beauty and quietude comes through in her work. Her photos are images of peace and tranquility. I love her use of color...Ruth's photographs help me see what i might not otherwise see...familiar images in a whole new way."

-David Cooper, Ph.D, Psychoanalyst, Bethesda, Maryland
