Kim studied photography and printing all throughout her teens and attended Parsons School of Design where she began photographing local artists and musicians while living in the East Village and Lower East Side where the local music venues became her second home. She also began working as Photo Research Editor at Teen Vogue magazine while still attending Parsons and went on to work at American Vogue for several years. She continued to photograph and document a diverse group of creatives from musicians to writers and filmmakers, and her work has been featured in a range of magazines from NYLON, Paper, Harper's BAZAAR to Mix. Her work has been shown at the Milk Gallery in New York City and Kana Manglapus Projects in Lost Angeles. 
Daniel Johnston here
Kim began photographing Daniel Johnston in 2008 after being invited to shoot backstage at The Warsaw in Brooklyn, New York. Since then she has photographed him exclusively on his tours and at his home in Waller, Texas. She launched a Kickstarter campaign in March 2012 which included a video shot by filmmaker Brody Baker, and successfully funded the first-ever photography book and traveling exhibition project on Johnston, making it one of the most successful photography projects on Kickstarter.
