16 years old. 

After losing both of her parents within the same year, Kasthuri came to live at the Russ Children's Home when she was eight years old. She has a tender yet giddy spirit, engaging everyone around her. She enjoys drawing and hopes to become a teacher when she is older. Kasthuri's photography style held a pattern of showcasing the broader story of a subject when most others would choose to zoom in. She truly created grand compositions by choosing to capture more - not less - with the lens.
