Haruka Sakaguchi is a graphic designer/photographer currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. When she is not working out of her studio The Denizen Co., she can be found daydreaming about roadside diners and taking portraits of NYC locals. Last year saw her take a trip through the Californian desert to Joshua Tree. Speaking of the adventure, she says:
