For last semester’s photojournalism class, I was tasked to complete a photo essay on an event or someone in my community. There were a few ideas floating around in my mind but eventually, I decided to do my essay on Kim Bialkoski. Thankfully she entertained this project and was very accommodating throughout the process.
Kim and I initially met at a Satanic Rights show in 2016, and what stuck with me was her positive attitude, friendliness, and passion for DIY. I found it incredibly cool that she operates her own food preservation company, flora & farmer, and I’ve had the utmost respect for her hard work and dedication to her business and her customers.
