Currently based in Tokyo, Ruriko Taguchi was born on December 8, 1978 and grew up in Nagoya City of Aichi Prefecture.
She took up photography in 2003 through self-study. After winning the Fuji Photo Salon New Face Prize in the same year, she began working as a photographer.
While working as a photographer in the music and magazine industries, she has consistently produced themed works with women as her subject, regularly showing these with photography exhibitions and publications.
Her key works include: "Keigai Doboku (bare forms)" (2010–), which is a portrait collection of women's backs; "SCAPE" (2016–), depicting nudes as scenery; "KIYOKO" (2017–),a series of portraits documenting her grandmother; and "CUT OFF" (2020), nude portraits of herself for the first time.
