After years spent working in notorious Berlin nightclubs, photographer Sarah Schoenfeld is the first person to admit an astute awareness of the unique effects of recreational drugs. After observing first-hand the hedonistic behaviour of hardened ravers, she decided to bypass her voyeuristic gaze by taking a range of mind-altering substances and placing them directly onto developed photo negatives.

Turning her studio into a laboratory, Sarah squeezed drops of various legal and illegal liquid drug mixtures onto exposed film, blowing them up to large scale prints that reveal incredible shapes and colours, and the unique inner universes hiding within these substances. Consider our minds altered.
