As the doorperson at CBGB's and the chief photographer of "Punk" Magazine, Bayley knew and befriended many of the musical artists and personalities who comprised New York's "Blank Generation" -- Richard Hell, The Ramones, Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers, Blondie, et. al., as well as those who came to America from England -- Joe Strummer; Elvis Costello, and The Sex Pistols.

Her work is prominently featured in such notable books, as "Blondie: Images, 1976 - 1980," (London: Plexus Publishing, 2006); "Blank Generation Revisited: The Early Days Of Punk" (New York: Schirmer Books, 1997); and "Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History Of Punk" (New York: Grove Press, 1996). Bayley's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
