2019 Photojournalism grad TaeHyeong Kim checks in from his desk in Seoul, South Korea

TaeHyeong Kim, class of 2019 sends along this image of himself at his editors desk in Seoul South Korea yesterday. Tae Hyeong works as a picture editor for a large Korean publication. In the background you can see his monitor showing the images from the repatriation of the victims of the Canadian Armed Forces helicopter crash to RCAF station Trenton, just 7 kilometres from Loyalist College. It served to me as a reminder of how our grads make such an impact in daily life, just down the road, across Canada, and around the world. Indeed, two of the three Canadian Press photographers covering the events at Trenton yesterday were grads of the Loyalist Photojournalism Program. To see the work of grads shot in our backyard being edited by another PJ grad half a world away is a perspective we don’t often get to consider. Our thanks to TaeHyeong for checking in and saying hello. A talented photographer himself, you can see TaeHyeong’s work as a student elsewhere on this blog and on the website.
