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.

The photo book and traveling exhibition are set to launch in March 2013 during the SXSW Festival hosted by Louis Black, the Co-Founder of SXSW and The Austin Chronicle who was an early supporter of Daniel Johnston. [4] [5]
