Ruth Steinberg is an Ottawa based photographer specializing in portraiture and fine art photography. She holds a BFA from the University of Manitoba and graduated from the two year Portfolio Program at the School of the Photographic Arts Ottawa (SPAO). She was the Artist in Residence, Short-term Projects at Enriched Bread Artists in Ottawa, ON during the fall of 2014, where she initiated the series What the Body Remembers.

"The artists that first inspired me -- Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Mary Ellen Mark, Diane Arbus, Sebastiao Salgado -- still influence me today. What I have learned from their images is to see the grace and dignity in all beings  and to bring this consciousness to my own work."
