HARSH BARGE (härsh – bärj)
n. Clashing elements of sound and color. A cacophany of the senses.
Oh hi. My name is Mito, and I’m a photographer and video producer in NYC where I work for NPR Music. I get to make things like photos and videos and put them on the interwebs, sometimes even live! My pet project is Field Recordings.
My background is in the unlikely field of science. I received my BA in Molecular & Cell Biology, Neurobiology at UC Berkeley and then worked for three years in a lab at Northwestern in Chicago before making the move to photography. I joined the master’s program in photojournalism at the Missouri School of Journalism and haven’t looked back since.
I like stories and clever ideas carried out in beautiful ways. I enjoy harmony, discordance and corndogs.
