Arts Bombast: Ruby Ray

Another week, another punk photographer featured on Ribbon Around a Bomb. Ruby Ray‘s shots bring pure, unadulterated joy to mine eyes on this otherwise so-so Wednesday. The best part? The San Francisco (and occasionally LA) focus, of course.

And, extremely awesome: Ruby Ray recently put out a book of her late ’70s photographs, called Punk Passage. You can actually check out the whole damn thing online. Gawd I love you, Internet.

    Thanks for posting. Nope, that’s definitely a photo of The Bags – the guitarist in the back is Patricia Morrison, aka “Pat Bag” who later went on to play in The Gun Club.

      Thank you! Her make-up looked more like it did in CS. Okay, I’m removing my original comment, but let it be known to anyone who reads the comments: I wasn’t sure if the pic of the Bags was Castration Squad, and then I was set straight by a wise commenter named Jay.

    This is awesome! The poses have everybody looking different directions, but it still doesn’t look like a train stop between trains. So ^&$^#$ cool!
