Taehoon Kim (he/him) is a photographer and creative manager working on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəỷəm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and SəỈílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
Born in South Korea, he immigrated to Canada when he was six. Taehoon graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with the full intention of pursuing a law degree, but rekindled his love of photography while teaching and travelling in Asia.
He applied on a whim to Ohio University’s School of Visual Communication, somehow got in, and earned his M.A. in photojournalism. His master's project was a short film about a backyard wrestling federation (yes, you read that correctly!).
Currently, he is the Manager, Content, at Capilano University in North Vancouver, B.C. He is the managing editor of Capsule, the University's digital storytelling platform.
Taehoon began his career as a photojournalist, and still creates personal documentary work. He is a proud member of Diversify Photo.
