My name is Rugile Kaladyte, but I also go by "Rue."

Studied photojournalism at the Rochester Institute of Technology, earning a BFA in May of 2015.

I was born in Lithuania and moved to the United States with my mom and sister when I was four years old. In the summer of 2014, I visited my family in Lithuania for the first time in 10 years and discovered my passion for long-term projects. The camera and need to tell stories have taken me to places that I couldn’t have even imagined and I have no intention of stopping now.

Currently the photo intern at Jackson Hole News&Guide.
