9-10:30 Opening and keynote with Yunghi Kim, “The passion to persist and persevere”
Photojournalism often requires guts, guile, good instincts, discipline and commitment.  For 39 years, Kim has trusted her instincts and charted her own path. That risk-taking has guided her on intimate stories to find a hidden hook or angle. Looking beyond the self to empower others has also lead her efforts in publicizing copyright awareness. Her goal is to capture intimacy and emotion, providing a view of humanity that has an impact on the viewer.
