Celebrity Candids from the ‘70s
Look for the June issue of Petersen’s PHOTOgraphic Magazine for their career article on Kim. The text of the article is available on this site along with the rest of Kim’s bio, and is also available in the magazine-layout format as a PDF download [357Kb].
From Dec 1, 2004 to Jan. 31, 2005, some of Kim’s work from the 1960’s and 70’s was on display at Café Latte in Los Angeles. The show was so well received, it lead to the creation of this site, a career profile in Petersen’s PHOTO Magazine and the impetus to begin work on several books.
Debra Hill, the producer who first hired Kim to shoot John Carpenter’s “Halloween” and who fought to get her into the Cinematographers Guild, passed away in March, 2005. She was a mentor and a friend and Kim will always be grateful for having known her. This is the photo Kim took which ran in the L.A. Times obituary section on March 8, 2005.
New In Print
Genesis Press in London just released a limited edition, hard case/oversized collectors’ edition of definitive photos of Jimi Hendrix — “Classic Hendrix.” It features several of Kim’s Hendrix portraits and the following commentary written by Kim’s former UCLA Film School teacher, award winning screenwriter, Bill Kerby (excerpt): “It wasn’t a particularly good interview I seem to remember; I didn’t do a great job. I only did music interviews to get free entry into concerts! One thing I do remember though is that Jimi loved the photographer, Kim — he thought she was the cutest thing in town… [snip]… So Kim took the photos and one of them, the one of Jimi smiling really cutely, caused a bit of a stir when it was published because no one had ever taken a picture like that of Jimi before.”
Hendrix Definitive Documentary in the works
Producer/Director David Kramer has been working on a documentary on Jimi Hendrix for 13+ years. He is incorporating videographics, animation, and special effects with original Hendrix music, never before seen footage and photos (including several of Kim’s) along with nearly 300 videotaped interviews, this promises to be the most complete definitive documentary ever done on Jimi Hendrix.
Film Wins Documentary Award
Monica Haim has written, directed and produced a film entitled "Awake Zion" which features one of Kim's shots of Bob Marley.

Through the themes of music, roots and culture, it aims to expose the senselessness of hate or intolerance by highlighting kinship as opposed to difference. Awake Zion screened as a special sneak preview at the DC Independent Film Festival on Saturday, March 12, 2005 @ 4:45pm In April 2004 Awake Zion received the Honorable Mention for Documentary Short at the Black Point Film Festival in Lake Geneva, WI.
Awake Zion will screen as a sneak preview at the following:
- Rome Independent Film Festival (April 2005)
- Vancouver Jewish Film Festival (April 2005)
- Toronto Jewish Film Festival (May 2005)
