You are an incredible photographer and story teller. I am haunted by your images of "Girl interrupted" and "Life and Death" - touching and heart-renching.
Your work is superb.

I have really enjoyed your work, especially your very personal study of a mental illness that affects so many young women.

I wandered into your galleries and stayed quite a while and plan to keep returning.
Your images are very intriguing, powerful and beautiful!
Thanks for sharing them with the world.

I could not stop looking . . .
Sue Roberts04-May-2008 15:14
wonderful amazing art.........i am just beginning to explore your galleries and they are fabulous.
RachelJane08-Apr-2008 20:03
Oneday soon, I hope your body becomes your pride, rather than a tool to display what goes on within. You are a beautiful photographer, yet I can't help but be made emotional at the private work, which expresses at the deepest level, your inner most world.
Set yourself free Ruth.
You are truly beautiful in many ways.

Amazing collection of Art.

I really enjoy your galleries. Nice juxtaposition of art and reality. LG
Dominic Kite27-Aug-2007 12:31
I found your photos late last night, when I was so tired, that anything I had written or said, would have seemed like a tired meaningless attempt. I came back today and had another look through your galleries. Thank god I did, you're a unique talent.

It's rare I stumble upon someone elses work that instantly strikes such a chord. You've put together an emotional beautiful collection of photos. All your exhibitions and achievements, are testament to this. You've set creative, insprirational thoughts moving in my mind - which is the highest accolade I can pay you.
Michele Motta07-Aug-2007 18:07
all I can say is WOW, and thanks. Very inspiring. Looking forward to more!
Kindest regards, Michele

Hi Ruth,

I have very much enjoyed taking a look at your images. You are clearly very creative and have a lot of original compositions.

Thanks for your comment on my Lowry picture, I loved the photographs in the gallery were I took my picture but those Lowry's, b***dy awful!

your work is inspiring!
Yves Rubin03-Jul-2006 03:50
Hi Ruth,

I just have to say that I am amazed with you work, and see so much positiveness and hope in it! Your profile quote:

"We all die. The goal isn't to live forever. The goal is to create something that will"

just resonated with me!
Chris Sofopoulos24-Jun-2006 13:00
I just want to express my respect for your wonderful, and most of all, inspiring images.
Since many months you are in my favourites list so I can explore from time to time your works.
bruce berrien24-Jun-2006 00:04
Be careful around that Niall fellow. He's Trouble. That's right. Capital "T" Trouble. And you can tell him I said so.

Hi Ruth,

Thank you SO much for all your consistant and persistant words of encouragement and support. They truly mean so much to me.
As you for, pretty chicky, your work just gets better and better, and I love that you've recently been concentrating on expressing your inner most thoughts and feelings through photography; your self-portait gallery is feckin' outofthisworrrrrld! I hope you've found that it's let a little air of the tires, as it were.
Can't wait too see you again soon, my angel, peut-etre en aout chez ma mere?

Love it! :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
Guest 12-Jun-2006 08:04
Hello Ruth. I came across your galleries through an image of Kal, dedicated to you.
Let me just tell you I've never spent more time in someone's galleries than in yours today.
I just can't explain it, but a lot of your images were made by your soul, rather than your eye. They go so deep, that sometimes it becomes uncomfortable looking at them. At that point, any comment about the picture quality means nothing and makes no sense, but as we're all photographers here, I'll just tell you anyway that also the quality of your images is very good. I like the Paris gallery a lot. As for your "girl, interrupted" gallery: I have no words, only endless admiration for your courage, and the generosity to share your deepest inside with us.
Mohab 08-Jun-2006 09:36
An Amazing gallar, especialy the "girl, interrupted" set.

Why ar'nt you writing a book about portrait photography?

Guest 07-Jun-2006 12:49
hi ruthie, you rock more and that the end of it, dont argue with me! ;-p
Guest 05-Jun-2006 17:49
Your photos are certainly refreshing. Can't say pbase has any thing quite like it.
Clyne05-Jun-2006 09:19
Ruth, thanks for your comment on my Myanmar gallery. Actually I'm surprise I haven't left a comment on your galleries before - I'm a fan and have been here many times before! Keep up the great work! Stuart
Ana Carloto O'Shea05-Jun-2006 08:03
Hummmm... it seems like I've never left you a message here also.
And if you think that I shoot from the heart, I believe you do the same. Stay inspired and keep on surprising us girl.

Ana 04-Jun-2006 12:10

Guest 31-May-2006 14:03
Hi, I'm looking for Ruth Doungans Hanson who went to BSHS graduating in 1966. Is that you? Pat Yonker
philippe carpentier22-May-2006 16:44

Subrata Basu22-May-2006 01:08
Very moving gallery, I will come back often.
Anne Dorsey21-May-2006 16:13
You knock my socks right off my feet, young lady, over and over again. I was delighted to see you are actively working on your galleries. I knew there was more to see after all your adventures abroad and the wait was certainly worthwhile. Anne
Lisa Sullivan14-May-2006 14:46

Hi Ruth,

I looked at your photos after perusing Friends Reunited. Just wanted to say, they totally blew me away, many of them leaving me thinking of them for days afterwards. They are incredible. Will definitely be coming back to your galleries.


David G26-Mar-2006 05:11
What an amazing collection Ruth! Happy to have stumbled upon your gallery...such a pleasure to see. :)
Guest 21-Mar-2006 19:28
there was a little man who sat on my shoulder, yelling at me to stop taking pictures, the other day I smacked 'im off my shoulder and put 'im in a jar which I now carry in my camera bag. thats what i do... i never forget what a critic says... i make it a part of what i do... i'll always have my angel in my bag... and a devil looking though my lens...

thanks for the tour..
Luci 06-Mar-2006 20:27

Jenny 10-Dec-2005 19:05
Hey Ruthie!
So good to see you again, and i thought as you mentioned your love of photography, i'd search for some of your work- it's amazing! Really emotional. Keep going with this incredible talent of yours!!
Lots of love,
Stan Schutze07-Oct-2005 03:49
I miss you Ruth. Come back soon.

Guest 07-Jul-2005 07:29

I just visited your galleries and they are really great

greetings from Belgium,
Didier Vanderperre25-Jun-2005 01:02
Ruth you have a unique Paris gallery: very well done.
Your sense of composition is really excellent
Guest 10-Jun-2005 20:59
Hi Ruthie,
I want to leave you a message here to tell you how deeply your imagery touched my heart, my soul.. all of my being. You are a truly gift human being, with a big and kind heart and with an enormous talent within.
Thank you very much for sharing your gift with all of us!

Kal Khogali31-May-2005 16:13
Hi Ruth. I came accross your galleries by accident, was gripped by them, and then dicovered that you also had a connection to Phil Douglis. I mentioned to Phil how absolutely stunned I was by your work, and that in fact your galleries made me want to throw out many of my images, and keep those that I can call remotely as expressive as yours. You are a talented artist, whose ability to express a feeling through every image is a gift. I wish I had that natural gift of genius, but since I don't, I can at least sit back and bathe in the wonder of admiring the work of one. Thank you for sharing your work and your feelings with us. Kal
Jose Paulo Andrade25-May-2005 14:35
Very good galleries with a lot of creativity! Keep going! I will be back!
Guest 05-May-2005 14:00
You have a gift. I have a healthy envy for your talent. I just started visiting this site and I am blown away by your natural talent. Keep posting images!
Phil Douglis22-Apr-2005 03:28
Your images have moved your viewers deeply, Ruth, including myself. The reason is quite obvious. You willingly express your own feelings to us, and do it in an extremely humane way. Technique for you is not an end in itself. It is a means to an end. Form becomes content, while abstraction and incongruity inform your expression. By enriching your viewers, you enrich yourself as well, as you take another step into self-discovery every time you make a photograph. I'm proud that you have asked me to help guide you on this journey.

edmundo 17-Apr-2005 18:05
i love the ramdom ii pic gallery and experimenting life and death.

I love the expression of the shot in experimenting life and death.. it make you feel not to fear with death coz there is always a new life coming in. (That what i feel with the flower in and death is always combination.. life for the flower, death for the grave) True death meaning is while we are living here and new life is when we finish in this world and go to heaven. :)
A Reid13-Apr-2005 05:17
Thank you for the kind comments you left on my site. I hope you'll come back again. allen
Chris 04-Apr-2005 08:24
What camera do you use in this photos in you gallery?Thanks
Fred 01-Apr-2005 12:54
I think you must be one of these people who stares off into the distance as the world rushes by and they miss irreplaceable moments, while in your quiet place you see the single snow flake in a blizzard. You must be someone who is greatly loved and loves. You don't just take photos, you create a memory of what we hope we ourselves might not forget. Simple in our life. God Bless you Ruth
DODI ZETA 24-Mar-2005 22:42
a beautiful lady..a great talent...

what a combination
Lisa 17-Mar-2005 21:49
