Ruthie Henderson

Conceptual Photographer

Hello, I'm Ruthie! I'm a conceptual photographer based out of St. Louis, Missouri. I'm a self-taught photoshop wizard. I taught myself by watching photoshop tutorials online and wandering my hometown with a camera.

Conceptual photography, to me, is altering reality and art to communicate or exaggerate ideas. I find it really difficult to express my thoughts through language, so photography is how I share my ideas. But most of all, it just makes me happy.
