Friday, April 6, 2012
John J. Kim has been a staff photographer for the Chicago Sun-Times since February 2004. Previously, Kim worked for five years for the Oakland Tribune and its sister publications in the San Francisco Bay area. Kim was born in Busan, Korea, which he, his parents and his three older brothers left for the United States when he was 7 years old. By the time he was 8 years old, he had gained full command of English, which he credits largely to watching "Sesame Street" every weekday for month after month. He graduated from the University of Illinois in 1997 with a degree in communications.
Work We <3 | FDP
Instead of spending all our time calling out journalism that doesn't work, we want to find work we like. We'd like to encourage our readers to submit links to content that is moving or challenging and that goes beyond the standard narrative either at the level of form or content. In other words, we want to see journalism that works.
We're particularly interested in work at the nexus of the following categories:
- Please include a comment explaining why the content you're sharing works.
- Comments can be as short or long as desired.
