Philadelphia freelance photographer. Philadelphia photographer

Hi! I’m a Korean Canadian freelance photographer based in Philadelphia. My background is in photojournalism and documentary photography. I am interested in the way people relate to one another and am curious about how history impacts the present.

After studying sociology and psychology in college, I became interested in social justice, mental health and racial issues. I want to better understand why we are the way we are and how everything is connected.

I am a proud member of Women Photograph, Diversify Photo and founding board member of the Authority Collective. I am part of these groups as a photographer because I want to see equity in the photo industry.
