Photo journalist Yunghi Kim felt that there was a "silent generation" of women photojournalists who are often overlooked. Maybe their work was never digitized. Maybe their work is sitting right now in the basements of newspapers, magazines and photo agencies, buried in an archive they can't access and may never be able to. So she took it upon herself to do something about it.
“What she was doing through her entrepreneurial endeavors wasn’t just focused on her own economic and financial advancement, but it was a way for her to provide economic advancement for her community, particularly black working-class women. She thought of a way that the beauty industry could give these women financial independence and autonomy over their labor and working lives.”
