Kim says of her work “I am drawn to people. To their emotions. I wonder what hides behind the facades we all put up. With my images, I aspire to generate compassion and understanding. To minimize fears of our perceived imperfections. To show humans, from every walk of life; religion, color, race and orientation, that at the very core we are all so very much alike, telling the stories of these people and sharing them with others, but leaving blanks to be filled in by the viewer.”
Being of the LGBTQ+ community she strives to humanize the diversity of all groups of people. In her desire to capture everyday folks and their stories she has traveled far and wide including a 10-month solo trip all around the US in 2017 capturing rural America and its people.
