Kaleigh Rusgrove was born in Connecticut and spent her formative years photographing her younger sister against a leaf-patterned bed sheet with a Kodak disposable camera. Moving on to a point-and-shoot as a teenager, she made a series of portraits of local troublemakers that earned her moderate praise among the other neighborhood kids. Kaleigh eventually settled on the solitude of photographing herself with a DSLR. At some point she decided to keep making pictures forever. 


Kaleigh is currently based in Sydney, Australia working on a series funded by the Fulbright Program. Work in progress can be seen on the project website HERE.
