A Little About Me...

The obligatory photo

The above image was taken by my good friend Elle at Disneyland in Tokyo--supposedly the ichiban tourist attraction in the world. I visited Japan last summer (June 2010) to visit her and another friend living in Tokyo as something between a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and one last hurrah before starting graduate school.

At the age of almost 25,

Currently, I am a Photojournalism graduate student in Visual Communication where I will hopefully defend and gradute in June 2012. I shoot Nikon, my favorite color is purple, and I find it a little over the top that there are six levels of headers.

Personal, a different way

Despite strong arguments against it, I named my personal website hygroden-jukebox after Allen Ginsberg's poem "Howl" rather than after my name and some derrivation of the word photography. The stanza runs:

" who sank all night in submarine light of Bickford's floated out and sat through the stale beer after noon in desolate Fugazzi's, listening to the crack of doom on the hydrogen jukebox, "
and for some reason that last bit resonated with me; it was somehow deeper than the rest and I had to have it for my own.
